In Memory – Coach Richard Jones

December 26, 2018

Dear Knox County Schools Family,

It is with great sorrow that I inform you that Coach Richard Jones, longtime educator and girls basketball coach at Lynn Camp Schools, passed away this morning following a battle with kidney cancer.

To his family, I extend my condolences on the loss of a husband, father, and great man.  Coach Jones was the face of Lynn Camp Schools in many ways, proudly supporting the Wildcats both athletically and academically. His reach extended beyond the school walls and into the community.  Coach Jones will be greatly missed by all.

Funeral arrangements will be conducted at Lynn Camp Middle/High.  We will keep you updated as we receive further information.

Please keep the Jones family and his Lynn Camp Schools family in your thoughts and prayers.
Coach Richard Jones shown with son Andrew and wife Tonya.
