Donald E. Jones, age 89, of Russellville, Mo., passed away Thursday, December 3, 2020, at his home.

He was born December 18, 1930, in Moniteau County, the son of Jesse D. and Evelyn A. (Hart) Jones. He was married November 4, 1950, in Russellville, Mo. to Amy G. Scrivner, who survives of the home.

A longtime resident of the Central Missouri area, Don graduated from Russellville High School in 1949. He was employed for many years with Kaw Transport as a truck driver delivering gasoline and propane to various locations around Missouri.

Don was a man of faith and a member of the Russellville Baptist Church. Alongside his wife, he built a home and a family strong in faith. He was an avid reader, his favorites being westerns and he read the Bible several times throughout his life. Don was a sports lover, playing basketball and softball in his younger years and most recently watching Chiefs football. Don could often be heard reciting poems, telling jokes and singing jingles he remembered from various times of life. He was always friendly and social, never missing a chance to visit or catch up with someone. He appreciated God’s creation and spent a lot of time outdoors around the farm, often taking his sons along to help with farm chores.

Simply put, Don was a good man. He was active in the lives of his children and grandchildren. He was a man people could count on or turn to when they needed guidance, advice or a laugh. He will be remembered for being thoughtful, loving, wise, strong and for raising the most delicious tomatoes ever.

Survivors include: his wife of 70 years, Amy Jones; his eight children, Debbie Heinrich (Daniel), Peggy Heinrich (Donald) and Pam Schroeder (Chris) all of Jefferson City, Mo., Kenneth Jones of Quincy, Il., Diane Stone (Roy) of Jacksonville, Fl., Dennis Jones of Eldon, Mo., Doug Jones (Char) of Windsor, Mo., and Darrell Jones of Russellville, Mo.; his two sisters, Janice Paine (Leon) and Eunice Wilbur (Donald), both of Paola, Ks.; fifteen grandchildren, Dana (Rick) Popp, Jamie (Kyle) Fischer, Jeff Heinrich, Sarah (Adam) Privett, Emily Schroeder, Amy (Anton) Furman, Adam Stone, Andrew (Tiffany) Stone, Levi Stone, Daniel (Heather) Jones, Kasey Miller, Mark Jones, Jesse Jones, Rachel Jones, Josh Jones; twenty-four great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Don was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse and Evelyn Jones; and granddaughter, Tori Jones.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at Russellville Baptist Church.

Funeral services will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at the Russellville Baptist Church with the Reverend Rusty Kuhns officiating. Graveside services and interment will be held at Enloe Cemetery.
