Obituary for John R Jones

John R. Jones, 54, Mount Carmel, IL of Mount Carmel, IL passed away on Sunday, March 6, 2016 in Wabash County, IL.

He was born on June 21, 1961 in Wabash County, IL, the son of Donald and Ruth (Jones) Jones. John came from a large family having two brothers and three sisters. John married Vickie Henson and together they treasured sixteen years of marriage. Some of John and Vickie’s fondest memories were spending time with their grandkids at the river camp.

John was a true outdoorsman seeing God’s hand in creation. He loved hunting, being on the river and just spending time in nature, especially with his son John Boy. He had a natural talent in carpentry and was very proud of the home he built for his family. John took great pride in his work at Gibson County Coal and loved all his mining family. He was of Christian faith. John had a heart for his fellow man and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He will be missed by his family and all who knew him.
