Frank L. Jones II, 81, a retired pastor and a former associate treasurer for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, died November 28, 2007, at his home in Huntsville, Alabama, following a brief illness.
Jones served at the church’s world headquarters from 1977 to 1990. He was the first African-American elected to serve in the treasury department. When the GC decided to move its headquarters from Takoma Park, Maryland, to its present site in Silver Spring, Jones was appointed to oversee the construction of the new building and the transfer of employees to the new facility.
Jones had served as a pastor in the southern United States and after retirement acted as a consultant for the construction of new buildings at Oakwood College in Huntsville.
He is survived by his wife, Dorothy, and three children.
