Willard R. Jones

June 16, 1937 — October 2, 2023

Willard R. “Junior” Jones, 86, of Fayette City, passed away Monday, October 2, 2023 at his home.  Born June 16, 1937 in Fayette City, PA he was the son of the late Willard M. and Lavinia Jane Lindey Jones.  A lifelong resident of Fayette City, Junior worked at Stephens Dairy Farm from a young age delivering milk and worked for 30 years at Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Allenport Plant as a millwright.  He was a master woodworker making anything from pens, bowls, tables, and stools and loved nothing more than giving away something he made to see their smile. He also enjoyed travelling everywhere with his family, making memories wherever they’d go.

He is survived by daughter Dianne Jones with whom he made his home with, son & daughter in law Christopher & Christina Jones of Belle Vernon, three grandchildren Michael Jones, Cheyenne Jones, and Ryan Jones and many brothers and sisters in laws, nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his wife Linda L.
