Mr. Larry Anthony "Ant" Jones, of Lamont Street, Waterbury, passed away Friday, June 29, 2018 at Yale New Haven Hospital surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Ellen "Niecy" (Jordan) Jones.

He was born in Mineola, New York on May 9, 1971 to Ida Taylor Jackson of GA and the late Lawrence Black.

"Ant" as he was called by many moved to the wonderful city of Atlanta in 1976. This is where he began his educational journey, attending school in Dekalb County and graduating from Avondale High School. He matured from being a rambunctious adolescent to a focused young man. After an extended time working at his passion of painting, detailing, and restoring cars, Anthony moved to Waterbury, in 2004 where he resided until his passing. Here he met and married the love of his life, Ellen "Niecy" Jones. He found his Soul Mate, his friend, the wind beneath his wings from the beginning to the end. He was a longtime member of Christ CME Church. In his spare time he enjoyed flying his drones if he wasn't detailing cars. He was a loving person who enjoyed life and loved to tell jokes. His family was very important to him. Being the youngest of his siblings, he received extra attention not only from his mother but his sisters also. He loved his daughters and loved spending time with family, especially his grandchildren. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Besides his loving wife "Niecy" he is survived by four daughters; Natasha Jones Javaira Coleman both of Atlanta, GA, Cimone Ramsuer of Waterbury and Ebony Barnes of Hartford, one son; David Brown of Waterbury, five grandchildren, two sisters; Ocie (Benjamin) Kelly and Penny Horne one brother; Otis (Laval) Jones all of Stone Mountain, GA. All four of them were unique and Anthony had a special relationship with each of them. They were very influential in his life whom he loved so dearly, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, three who he grew up together like brothers, Craig, Dwayne, and Little Charles, cousins and a host of friends as well as friends who formed a Brotherhood that stood the test of time and journey from boyhood, to manhood, Darrell, Valente, and Larry who joined the group when Darrell went to college. Anthony had a life that touched the heart of so many and his smile will be in our mind and hearts forever
