Norman W. Jones, 39, an electronics technician in the engineering department of Metromedia Television (Channel 5) and a veteran of eight years in the Navy, died of leukemia Friday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He lived in Suitland.
Mr. Jones, who was born and grew up in Syracuse, N.Y., enlisted in the Navy in 1960 and became an electronics and communications technician. He served on ships all over the world and also at various Naval stations in the United States. He was stationed at the Naval Air Test Center at Patuxent River, Md., when he left the service in 1968 and moved to Washington.
He attended the Temple School of Electronics and worked as an electronics consultant for Mid-Atlantic Industries, Inc. In 1970, he joined Metromedia and remained there until his death.
Mr. Jones was a 32nd degree Mason and a Shriner. He also was a member of the Central Union Baptist Church in Washington.
Survivors include his wife, Nancy, and a son, Norman W. Jr., both of Suitland; fiver brothers, James I., of Brooklyn, N.Y., Vernon M., of Kentucky, Winfred H., of Syracuse, Herbert L., of Oxon Hill, and Marvin L., of Boston; and two sisters, Christine E. Conners of Syracuse, and Camille D. Washington of Boston.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions in Mr. Jones's name to the American Cancer Society.
