Capt. Charles "Whitey" Jones passed away on Wednesday the 5th.

Capt. Whitey goes back to the very beginning of the modern excursion/dinner cruise operations here in the Cincinnati harbor.

Capt. Whitey closed out his career with BB Riverboats after starting years ago with Capt. Frank Johnston on the Johnston Party Boats. He was a superb boat handler and usually drew the hard assignments. I worked the last Tall Stacks with him and it was a delight. He was a fountain of knowledge on the river of today and as an S & D member on the river of yesterday
