Jonathan Langston Rhodes, son of the late William and Elizabeth Rhodes, was born on August 9, 1953, in Long Branch, NJ. He was called home on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Jonathan grew up and spent most of his life in Keyport, NJ, where he was an employee of the Borough of Keyport, before moving to Willingboro, NJ.
He loved fishing, training horses, lottery tickets, and spending time with his family. He also loved sharing stories, which often had many laughing and wondering if the story was a tale or truth, but you could count on it making you laugh or “crack” a smile.
Jonathan was a member of the Community Bible Fellowship in Cliffwood, NJ. He was an essential part of the CBF Heritage Committee bookbag and supply drive each year.
He had a generous heart, always willing to give to family and friends.
He is predeceased by his sisters, Barbara Johnson, and Lucille Royster, and brother Vincent Taylor.
He leaves to celebrate his life, twin sons, Jermaine Smith (Florida) and Jonathan Smith (New Jersey); three grandchildren, Ariana, Jonathan, and Emmanuel; two sisters, Glorya (Arthur) Donnell and Denise (Rhoderick) Love; brother-in-law, Robert Royster; three special little ladies, Jada, Kyia, and Dev’ayn, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
