I have fond memories of +Bill and Maggie when they were in St. Louis. As Bishop, he referred to the annual Diocesan Convention as the "gathering of the family." My deepest sympathy to all family members.

Greetings and blessings to you four girls I remember when Neal and I Picked your father up on his first Trip to St. Louis. + Bill, your mother and the 4 of you will always have a special place in my in my heart and I think of you all often. With much love, Natalie

Great, insightful and funny man. I miss him in the Diocese of Missouri, especially as a member of the Task Force on the Relationship with the Church in Northern Nigeria. May his soul rest in peace, with deep sympathy to the family.

My name is Sally Stephens Bergquist and I grew up in Pulaski, TN. Bishop Jones baptized me as an infant and is my first priest of whom I still have many fond memories. He and Margaret had Sara Beth and Marty while in Pulaski and we played together with my older sister Randol as very young children. My husband and I moved to Mountain Brook, AL in 1979 with our oldest child and then had 3 more children. We joined St. Luke's Episcopal Church and saw Bishop Jones again when he came to St....

Remember him very well. He band Maggie came to my home for lunch after church several times. I was on Missouri Diocesan Council many years ago. Bishop was chair. After meeting over, he and I spent much time alone on the patio at Thompson Center. We both were staying there. (We discussed much and solved many of the World's problems - at least I it felt like we did) Very Good person. REST IN Peace!

My deepest sympathy to the Jones Family for the loss of your loved one, William, Jr., and pray God gives you comfort, peace and strength.

I did not know Bishop Jones well but I did know his daughter Lu who was my RA at Kenyon College in 1978/79. Reconnecting to send condolences to Lu and all the Jones' family.
