A former Jones County Sheriff has passed away.

Reynolds Mason died Monday afternoon in Lillington from natural causes.

Mason worked for the State Highway Patrol for 25 years.

He also served two terms as Jones County sheriff.

A stroke forced him to retire in 1998.

Mason will be buried Thursday, which would have been his 77th birthday.

The Highway Patrol Honor Guard will be at the funeral.
