To the Editor:

The State Bar of Georgia extends condolences to the family, colleagues and many friends of Cordele resident and longtime Georgia lawyer Henry O. Jones III, whose passing May 28 has left us all saddened. 

During his distinguished career in the legal profession, which began in 1973, Mr. Jones engaged in the private practice of law in Americus before serving many years as a prosecutor in the Cordele Judicial Circuit, the Southwestern Judicial Circuit and the Macon Judicial Circuit. 

Mr. Jones will be missed and fondly remembered by his legal community colleagues. We appreciate the many contributions he made during his admirable career and his exemplary service to the public and the justice system.
