Binky always put a smile on my face when I was a kid. He would always beep his loud truck horn at me when I was standing at the bus stop. he would holler my name. I can still hear him! He was always smiling everytime I seen him. I wished I could have seen him , one last time. My heart is hurting for you al, he was too young! Hugs, Cindy

To the family of Binky Jones. What can I say other than my heart is broken. Binky meant so much to me. Used to be with him all the time when he had his band with Sal, Allen, Bob. Bink was a good guitarist and singer and he was so well liked by everyone. He will be missed by everyone that crossed paths with him in this lifetime.
Words can’t express how I feel about losing Binky. He couldn’t help but bring a smile to your face everytime you were around him. I’ll miss him. He took a piece of my heart with him like so many others have. May he rest in peace with the angels. Prayers and love to all his family. Tim (cousin) and Kathy
I know I’ve been away from home for awhile. He was with us at our family gathering for Karen. I loved being around Binky, we rebonded as cousins. I will miss you Binky. Your walking with our Lord and singing in the angels choir. Enjoy your new life in heaven with family.
To the Jones family, I’m sorry for the loss of your brother. My heart hurts for you. I love you all. Your cousin, Kaye.
I knew Binky since 2nd grade. We shared many laughs and good times as well as not so good times. Binky lit up a room when he entered and always had a kind word and had a sense of humor beyond the norm. I still chuckle when thinking of things we did just for laughs. I pray God gives strength to his family at this time of sorrow and to remember Bink is now in peace and no more suffering from that terrible disease. I pray we meet again someday and and perhaps have a few laughs . Your old buddy, Iggy
T, so sorry to read about your family’s loss. I will keep you in my prayers. Judith Merkel
I am the oldest stepson from his 2nd marriage to
my mother Donna C [(Brown) (Starvaggi)] Jones. I remember his dad and mom as a child; and i remember
his brother also and all his sisters too, I grew up with sha sha, and shacky lil bink.
I remember Binkyâ€™s playing since the 70s when I was a kid. I am sorry to say my half â€“ brother Jeremy cannot make it in, he loved his dad.
My self, My Sister Paula, and my deceased Brother Mike was part of his life.
We will miss you, your playing, and cheer and teasing.
God Bless Stepfather

Our sympathy to his family. He was my Dad’s good friend and my parents will truly miss him.
RIP cuz Binky. I can remember so many times of laughter, ornryness on his part & just always good times when we were all hanging out. Just knowing Binky isn’t here on Earth anymore breaks my heart. You are among Angels & resting now cousin. I love you forever & ever! I will miss you til we meet again cousin. God bless all the rest of his family & may peace and comfort find you somehow. I believe Binky was one of those ‘ships’ that was saved by God’s ‘Lighthouse’, the very Lighthouse song he sang so beautifully at my mother’s funeral :””’)

May you come to know that the love of God is with you always,

I’m very sorry to hear of Binky’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
I remember when I was in high school and dated his son, (Bink Jr.), and he and his sister, (Glenda, Aunt T), was always so nice to me. I hate to hear that he passed on Christmas. My prayers go out to the family.
My dad, what can I say? I miss him. At the service I remember just staring at his hands, like I always did, because I was always watching as he went through the chords on the guitar. I wanted to remember his fingernails and the way he held his thumb while playing. We talked a lot about music and I miss not having him to talk to. When we were young, me, brian, Michael, Paula, and jay, dad was always working, playing music, doing a side job, or growing a garden, anything he could do to feed 5 growing kids. I didn’t realize it then, but I do now. Thanks dad for providing and to this day I can’t stand tomatoes! (We had them for every meal!) Dad I miss you. And although we didn’t see eye to eye always, I’ve always respected you. You taught me some good life lessons, and I hope I have your humility. You have fought the good fight, your race is won. Rest with our lord,
your son, little Bink
