Ronald J. Jones
1944 - 2019
Ronald Jasper Jones, 75, Warrenton, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, Wednesday, July 10, 2019, in Warrenton.
Ron was born March 25, 1944, to Jasper Jones and wife Ethel (Peat) at the family farm on North Highway 47 in Warrenton. He graduated from Warren Co. R-3 School District in 1962. On Jan, 10, 1965, Ron was united in marriage to Rose Marie Meyer. He was a gifted electrician and became a member of IBEW Local 1 in 1965. Ron valued his union brotherhood for close to 54 years.
During his career, Ron contributed his skills to many iconic St. Louis landmarks, including the Enterprise Center, Six Flags and West County Mall, as well as locally, Warrenton High School and College United Methodist Church.
Ron was passionate about his family, friends and community. He was actively involved in supporting his children and grandchildren during their academic and athletic events. If any friend needed a helping hand, Ron was there in a heartbeat and gave countless hours volunteering at College United Methodist Church and a variety of community events.
Ron enjoyed fishing and hunting for pheasant and quail in the serene fields of Kansas with his English setters which he bred and raised. He was an avid golfer and also loved coaching kids sports like basketball and Legion baseball/softball. Ron also enjoyed watching the St. Louis baseball and football Cardinals. He traveled the world after retirement and would fondly reminisce about his trips to Alaska, Australia, Hawaii and Europe.
