I first met Dr. Jones at Charlie Gwin's house just before I started college. He and Charleie had worked together the Summer before and I found him to be an amazingly funny and interesting person to talk with. He was a great guy and very down to earth. I really enjoyed the classes I was able to take under him in the 80s especially Medevial History. A scholar and a gentleman he could bring history alive and taught people about life. I am proud to say he taught me how to read and drive, just hold the book in the middle of the steering wheel and you can drive! I am really sorry that I did not find out till now of his passing. I know his family cherished him and will have many fond memories of the greatest history professor at Northeast, later ULM and a good man, loved by all who met him and talked with him.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Jones. I truly enjoyed his classes. I went to NLU in 1995 and then returned in 2005. I ran into Dr. Jones and he remembered me from taking classes in 1995! He even taught my dad in college in the early 70's. My dad loved him because Dr. Jones treated him so much better than some of the other professors because my dad had been a veteran of Vietnam! Dr. Jones was an inspiration to us all!! I will never forget William the Conquerer and 1066!! Good memories and a wonderful part of my education!

Mrs. Jones, Beth and Kathy, I am proud to count myself one of the priveleged individuals that was able to be in HP's Western Civ class at NLU. It was a hard class but I learned History and enjoyed that class so much! I also remember him coming to mine and Beth's Christmas parties when we were little girls dancing at Miss Linda's. Praying for you all in the days ahead. In His love, Susan

What a guy and what an interesting teacher coach Jones was. He was my Jr. and high school history teacher way back in 1958 and 1959. That could have been his first teaching position but you would have never know it. Evwn then, he was a pro, and judging from the other comments, he was a teacher's teacher. Fortunnaly, I was able to see and visit with him at our 50th high school reunion last year in Leland Ms. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. BILL Glover

In 1990, I was a clueless sophomore who had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. Dr. Jones was late for class the first day, and I suspected something was “up” since I had heard about his reputation. Sure enough, about five minutes into class the theme to Rocky blasted out of a closet. Then, the classroom door flew open and in jumped H.P. Jones in full graduation regalia. He proceeded to dance around the entire room for several minutes, which seemed to both confuse and delight most students. I can remember clearly the thought that ran through my head at that moment: “If this ‘old guy’ is having fun after so many years at the same job, maybe teaching history is for me.” It was, and I have been teaching history for almost sixteen years. Thanks for the inspiration Dr. Jones!

I will never forget the kind and gentle soul that HP was. He was my favorite teacher. He touched all of our lives at ULM. He will always hold a special place in my heart.

He was my friend and mentor, and taught me everything I know about teaching. I feel I've not only lost a close friend, but a member of my family. God bless him and his family.

Perry was a good friend and colleague at Northeast Louisiana University. He was an outstanding teacher and many students in Pure and Applied Sciences benefited from taking his classes.
Dr. Fleming McClelland left a message on March 23, 2013:
Perry was one of the first people whom I met when I came to ULM. He was a friend and a fixture on campus during my entire career in Monroe. I shall miss him, and he and his family shall be in my prayers. Mary Anne joins me in wishing comfort for his family.
