Stephen Michael Jones, age 77, passed away on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at Lakeview Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Boonville, Mo.
He was born on January 8, 1943 in Fairfield, Iowa, the son of Stephen Burns Jones and Mildred Irene (Martin) Jones.
In his later years, Steve accepted the Lord as his Savior. He so appreciated the kindness of his caregivers at the Lake View Healthcare Center in Boonville. Steve was a very intelligent man, who spent much of his time reading. He kept up with current events and politics and shared his knowledge in a most humble and caring way.
He is survived by his close cousin, Susan Ryan of Champaign, Illinois, and dear friend, Marjorie Megown of Jefferson City. Also surviving are cousins Jane Dooley of Fairfield Iowa, Nancy Smith of Lake Forest Illinois, Nancy Van Allen of Boise Idaho, Lory Van Allen of Iowa City, Iowa and Fred Van Allen also of Iowa City, Iowa.
Steve was preceded in death by his parents, Steve Burns Jones on July 13, 1988 and Mildred Martin Jones on April 3, 2005; and a cousin, Larry R. Martin of Lake Villa, Illinois.
Private graveside service and interment will be at Hawthorn Memorial Gardens.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
