THOMAS W. JONES
Thomas W. Jones, founder and retired president of Pacific Lithograph Co., died Dec. 19 of cancer at Marin General Hospital. The Ross resident was 76.
Mr. Jones, who served as a Ross councilman in the 1960s, was a leader in the commercial printing industry. He acquired a small printing company and built it into one of the largest in the west. The San Francisco-based company produced work for clients such as Ansel Adams.
A longtime resident of Marin County, his family moved to Ross in the 1920s from his grandparentsí farm in the Berkeley Hills. He attended Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, the University of California at Berkeley, and joined the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II, serving in the South Pacific and Guadalcanal.
In addition to serving as a Ross councilman, Mr. Jones was a member of Frontier Boys and Sonoma County Trailblazers and became a master gardener in his retirement.
He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Anne Lambert Jones; two sons Peter of Mill Valley and Bruce of Ross; two daughters Elizabeth Hart of Ross and Nancy Maymar of Kentfield; and nine grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held in January.
