Long Beach remembers a surfing legend -

Saturday, April 08, 2017

March 25 at Clayton Avenue beach in East Atlantic Beach, where Ward lived. There was also a paddle-out in the Puerto Rican surf spot Marias last month.“It was amazing — there was a phenomenal turnout,” Shane said of the local memorial. “For what could have been a somber day, we celebrated as he would have wanted. He was an integral part of the surfing community. I’m sure every surfer from Long Beach has some sort of story about him.”“He surfed the hurricane swells and was always out there for the big East Coast waves,” added Cliff Skudin, co-owner of Skudin Surf. “He was always about having fun in the water and sharing waves with others. He really brought good vibes.”Ward is survived by his children, Shane and Kaysi; brothers Mikey and Gary; a sister, Joyce; and his mother, Gaye.  Ward, who would have turned 58 on April 26, died while surfing in the Rincon area, possibly from a heart attack, though a cause of death has yet to be determined, family and friends said. According to Surfline, those who were with him attempted to give him first aid under extreme conditions, and stayed with him until a Coast Guard helicopter arrived.“He was the picture of fitness,” said Shane, who grew up surfing with his dad. “It was sudden, and it sucked because no one got to say goodbye to him. He was surfing one his favorite waves in the world and he was surfing good.”Ward was a lifelong Long Beach resident and a Long Beach High graduate. He played soccer in high school and at Ulster County Community College, where he won a national championship, Kaysi said. He went on to coach soccer for the Long Beach Lightning Bolts and at the Recreation Center after his children were born. “He was a really good coach, and he loved coaching kids and making people better, whether it was surfing or soccer,” Kaysi said. Ward was friendly and approachable, according to family and friends, but often “told it like it is.”“He had that ability to motivate and inspire people,” Kaysi said. “I played soccer in college at Towson, and definitely wouldn’t have if it weren’t for my dad. He never let me keep my participation ribbons as a kid — he wasn’t a believer in participation ribbons, and I got my competitive nature from him. He encouraged people to do their best. As long as you tried hard, that’s what mattered.”Ward began surfing in the early 1970s, Shane said, and was among a group of young surfers who were open to new techniques at a time when most surfers rode longboards.“I found these surf diari

Singer Brenda Jones, of the R&B Group The Jones Girls, Has Passed Away -

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Jones told EBONY. “When we lost Val in 2001 that was a real big blow to the family….The bond that we had growing up was unique; it was so special.”Shirley Jones continued, “The heartbreak is phenomenal. I can’t even imagine going on without her but life will go on. We’re strong and we’re going to persevere in her name. She was truly a wonderful person.”Consisting of sisters Shirley, Brenda and Valorie, The Jones Girls served as backup singers for soul acts like Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, and Diana Ross before striking out on their own. The group’s self-titled 1979 debut album landed in the top 10 on Billboard’s R&B charts, resulting in the hit “You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else” and its B-side, “Who Can I Run To,” which was covered by Xscape in 1995.[embedded content]Before disbanding in the early 2000s following sister Valorie Jones’ death, The Jones Girls recorded six studio albums and became a favorite among DJs, who still play their music–like the fan favorite, “Nights Over Egypt”–today.[embedded content]Shirley Jones has kept recording and performing over the years, and she said her sister was thinking of returning to music as well.“She did put out a record over in London a couple of years ago and I think it went to the top 10 on a couple of the soul charts there, but as far as performing she was trying to decide if that was something that she wanted to do again,” Shirley Jones said.According to her sister, Brenda spent most of her time with her daughter while she was a traveling nurse, taking care of her granddaughter because “she absolutely adored her.” Shirley Jones said Brenda’s dedication to her family was constant, and her impact on the music world will forever be felt.

Brownfield, Joe A. - Waco Tribune-Herald

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Billie, by his side. "Mr. B" as he was affectionately known by his family and friends, was born on February 15, 1924, in Swenson, Texas, to Joe N. and Ocie Brownfield. Mr. B grew up in Menard, Texas, working alongside his older brother, Jack, in their father's grocery store, the Busy Bee. Mr. B graduated from Menard High School in 1938 and enrolled at Texas A&M University, but his college career was interrupted by World War II. Mr. B volunteered and joined the U.S. Marine Corps in December 1942 and served his country in combat in the South Pacific theatre, including Guam and Okinawa. After three years and three campaigns, Mr. B was honorably discharged and returned home in December 1945.One of the first people Joe saw when he arrived back in Menard was his best friend's younger sister, Billie Ruth Hayhurst. She had grown up while he was gone, and he always said she was the prettiest girl he'd ever seen. It was love at first sight and the two began dating. Joe and Billie married on July 28, 1946, and they moved to Waco, Texas. Two beautiful daughters, Scherry and Sally, soon followed, and their son, Joe Troy, was a miraculous addition on March 2, 1962. The Brownfields joined Columbus Avenue Baptist Church and Mr. B attended the Judge Frank Wilson Young Businessmen's Sunday School Class for over fifty years. He enjoyed spending time with his family at home or at their deer lease, the Turkey Water Hole, in Brady, Texas, and he and Billie hosted their family every Thanksgiving
