Henry Jones (1)

Henry Jones, who played Judge Dexter in "Phyllis," gave every evidence of being a staid family man when in actuality he was divorced and lived alone at the beach. A veteran of 350 television appearances, dozens of movies and Broadway plays, Jones ruefully lamented, "I
lead a pretty dull life." And so he did. He was divorced in 1961 and at 63 was content to "live the rest of his life without romance."
By 1976 Henry's home for the past nine years had been a two-room apartment right on Malibu Beach with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, a body of water he "wouldn't think of bathing in."
He did, however, enjoy the sight, sound and aroma of the sea, eschewing the sunshine that went with it. He never sunbathed and preferred to walk the beach in foggy or rainy weather at low tide. The main room of his abode had a bar in one corner and a fireplace in the other. A large couch and a love seat converted into beds for those occasions when his offspring decided to spend the night. A small bedroom, kitchenette and bath comprised the rest of the dwelling.
His most frequent visitors were son David, 30, and a daughter, Jocelyn, 25, both of whom lived in the Los Angeles area. Henry's social life was severely limited by the demands of the series he worked in. He immersed himself in scripts weeknights. On Saturday evenings more often than not he took one of three lady friends to dinner. According to Henry, "there is nothing amatory in the relationships".
Most of the time Henry was up at 7 a.m. for a cup of coffee. He allowed an hour to drive the curving mountain road through Malibu Canyon to CBS Studio Center in the San Fernando Valley.
He ignored breakfast and lunch in an endless battle against gaining weight. Dinner was no big deal either Henry was a rotten cook but persisted in preparing his own evening meals.
Henry Jones died in Los Angeles, California, at age 86, from complications from injuries suffered in a fall.
