Son of Vernie Allen (V.A.) Jones and Helen Byers Jones; two older brothers and one younger sister. Beloved husband of 59 years to his high school sweetheart, Irene. Wonderful father of two daughters and two sons, grandfather of six, great-grandfather of two.

1st Lt. in U.S. Army during WW2 and the Korean War. Awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for bravery in Korea, 1951.

Graduate of University of Illinois with two engineering degrees; worked as a manager for Illinois Power Co for over 35 years. Active in his churches in Illinois and Florida. Loved to travel with his wife, visit his children and grandchildren; could fix or build anything. He taught his children to be responsible and to always strive for the best, no matter how much work that might take.

Well-respected by many; a fine man with a gentle and kind soul. Not a day goes by without his family remembering him and what a remarkable man, husband, father and grandpa he was.

Rest in peace, Dad.
