Former AITP Association President Ralph E. Jones, age 70 of Frankford, DE formerly of Burke, VA passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at his home.

Ralph was from the Washington DC Chapter and served in many positions before he became the AITP (then DPMA-Data Processing Management Association) President in 1992. DPMA in those days was about 15,000 members and that did not count the student members.  Ralph was noted for his even temper and thoughtful solutions to problems.

He served with me on the Education Foundation from 1997 through 1999. It was a pleasure to serve with him. He and his wife Vera served DPMA for many years. She in management roles for her Region.  

Mr. Jones was born in Washington, D.C. on May 24, 1943 son of James and Gertrude (Sutherland) Jones. He was a veteran of Vietnam serving in the United States Air Force.

Ralph retired as an Information Officer with the Association of the U.S. Army after 30 years of service.

He loved traveling, photography and doing crossword and Sudoku puzzles. His family and friends will always remember him as a doting grandfather and a loving husband and father.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions in Ralph’s name to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by visiting or the National Organization of Rare Disorders by visiting
