Obituary

Daniel William "Bill" Jones, Sr., of Bay Tree Lakes, Harrells, NC, passed away on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

He was born on September 5, 1929 in Duplin County to the late Willie Ashley and Mattie Futrell Jones. Daniel was also preceded in death by his sister, Hilda Jane Stimpson and brothers, Hullie Jones, David Ashley Jones and Bobby Jones.

Bill was a member of Riverside Baptist Church in Harrells, NC.

Surviving is his devoted wife of 56 years, Ina Ruth Foley Jones; son, Daniel William "Billy" Jones of Wallace; daughter, Lisa Jones Johnson and husband, William "Bill" Johnson of Warsaw; grandchildren, John-Daniel Johnson, Danielle Johnson and Haley Jones; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

After working eleven years as an agent with Southern Life Insurance Company, Bill continued his career for thirty-five years as owner of State Farm Insurance Agency in Wallace, NC. Upon his retirement in 1995, his daughter, Lisa, continued the tradition and became the owner of the agency. Following his retirement, Bill enjoyed being outdoors on his farm tending to his animals and gardening. He also enjoyed traveling with his family and was always the proudest when he was involved in his grandchildren's many accomplishments and activities. They made him part of their world even to the end. He was their special "PaPa". Bill Jones will surely be missed but cherished memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 8:00pm on Monday evening at the funeral home.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00pm on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Wallace Chapel with the Reverend Dr. Ray Ammons and special friend, Mr. Wayne Canady officiating.
