Obituary For Gregory Paul Jones
Gregory Paul Jones, 63, of Saugus, passed away on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, following injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
Greg was a passionate worker in the checkout line at Market Basket from October 1995 to November 2019. He liked getting dressed up with a white shirt, tie, and Market Basket apron. He also worked at the North Shore Arc where he enjoyed being able to work on various jobs at group employment sites with his peers. He loved socializing with staff. He would sit in the transportation department in the afternoon before going home to hang out with all the drivers to talk about sports. He embraced the local sports teams and was a dedicated fan of the Bruins. He would watch every game wearing his favorite Bruins shirt. He also would look forward to the Topsfield Fair where he enjoyed listening to live music, fair food and driving bumper cars.

Greg will be missed by everyone at Bridgewell, especially his staff and housemates at Vine Street. Greg had only been with us for less than a year, but in that short time, he made an everlasting impact on all of us. He brightened up our days with his ear to ear smile and his funny jokes. Greg was a shining light and he will be forever missed. We love you Greg! -Your Vine Street Family
I grew up next door to Greg and it was a pleasure to be his friend. My family would make special trips to market basket to see his smiling face. We always made sure we got in the lane he was bagging in. When visiting his Aunt in Peabody he would always stop over to visit with us. He never forgot us and we will never forget him! We will miss you! Dianne (Riley) Hamilton
I had the privilege of knowing Greg while I was a member of his home church, Seven Mile Road, in Melrose. He never missed a Sunday even though he would walk across town, and was always so cheerful to be around. His faithfulness to attend worship was a testament to his faith, his assurance of things hoped for, and the conviction of things not seen (Heb 11:1). I rejoice that Greg's faith has now turned to sight, as he sees his beloved Savior face to face, and is at peace.
Greg - It was a pleasure and honor to get to work with you all of these years. You were such a kind hearted man who put a smile on everyone's face around you. I know that everyone at the Northeast Arc misses you and are grateful that you were a part of our lives. I am glad you are at peace now Greg. Love, Lisa
Gregory was such a huge gift to this world. He loved so generously. I remember on my wedding day to his brother, his joy and passion for dancing. I loved dancing with him, as did the bridesmaids. He was a GREAT dancer--could carry a beat like no one else. And, what touched me most about him, was his extraordinary levels of sensitivity and empathy--a kind soul. The world needs more people like Gregory--thankfully we have him looking down upon all us now. I am so grateful he is with his mom in heaven, who cherished and nurtured him, and finally living with the peace he so deserves. Thanks, Greg, for lighting up a room with your unconditional love...we all have so much to learn from you. Love, Gail
