A group of about 35 AEP retirees, mainly from engineering and who live in the Columbus, Ohio, area, get together from time-to-time for lunch. One of the group, John Jones, who retired in 2002 as president of AEP Pro Serv after a 36-year career with AEP, is relocating to Virginia at the end of May. At a recent lunch attended by 24 of the group, John was honored.

  1. John was hard and demanding but he let you do it your way. Great photo of the cream of “Old” AEP.

  2. john was a great guy and probably one of the best engineers aep ever had. when he retired he had forgotten more than most of the ones left knew. i worked for him on several jobs and was always treated with respect by him. good luck john in virginia and do keep in touch.

  3. I surely agree with William Bickerstaff. I was fortunate to work with a contractor at both Unit 1 and Unit 2 at The Donald Cook Plant. John Jones was great to work with. He also knew how to enjoy life. Since John is originally from Virginia I can understand him relocating back to his home state. I also wish John the best of luck with anything he gets involved with. Recently I have had the pleasure of some contact with William “Bill” Bickerstaff. Bill is another great person that I had the privilege of working with as well as enjoying some off work hours. It was the years of the C. B. radios and it was a great relief to enjoy our time just relaxing withthe radios.
