Bourne CapeFLYER Station Named after Roy Jones III

BOURNE – The Bourne rail stop for the CapeFLYER was officially renamed Friday in honor of Roy Jones, III.

Friends, family, and colleagues of Jones were in attendance for the dedication ceremony.

Jones, who passed away in June at the age of 74, was the former Brewster fire chief. He was a member of the Brewster Fire Department for 47 years, serving as chief for 29 of them, before retiring in 2010.

Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority Administrator Tom Cahir spoke about Jones’ commitment to the trains and transportation systems of the area.

“All the good things that we’re doing at the RTA are because of people like Roy, who paid attention and supported initiatives that we proposed,” Cahir said.

The plaque honoring Jones at the station shows a quote from author Gary Zukav: “When the deepest part of you becomes engaged in what you are doing…you are doing what you were meant to be doing.”

RTA General Manager John Kennedy mentioned the passion Jones had for the CapeFLYER system.

“It fills me with joy to know that to have a station here, the only one with a name on it,to be in honor of Roy Jones, a guy that we all love,” Kennedy said.

Stories of Jones’ life were shared among those in attendance. His wife, daughter, brother, and grandson unveiled the dedication plaque.
