It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of one of Asheville GreenWorks’ board members, Stephen Jones. Stephen began serving on the GreenWorks’ board in 2012 and truly helped to make Asheville and Buncombe County cleaner and greener. A visionary, Stephen worked tirelessly on his dream of creating a park overlooking the City of Asheville from atop Beaucatcher Mountain.
The GreenWorks will carry on Stephen’s legacy, continuing to plant shade and fruit trees, keep our roads and rivers free of litter and ensuring that Asheville lives up to its reputation of being a green, healthy and sustainable place to live, learn and visit.
Stephen's memorial service will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville, officiated by Reverend Mark Ward, on January 30, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. 1 Edwin Place, Asheville, NC 28801
Donations in his honor may be made to Campaign for Southern Equality, Homeward Bound of WNC, or the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville.
