Charles W. “Bill” Jones Jr., 87 of Taylorville, formerly of Stonington, passed away at 10:25a.m. on Sunday, April 26, 2020 in his home.  

He was born on February 21, 1933 in Pawnee, the son of Charles W. and Mary (Harrison) Jones. Sr. Bill married Agnes Elaine Graham on September 10, 1960 in the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Stonington.

He served the U.S. Navy for 20 years where he retired as a Chief Petty Officer. Bill operated his own electrician service for many years. No matter if it were electric work or carpentry, Bill was a true craftsman. He was passionate about fixing things, and always made sure each project was done right. Bill and Agnes loved camping and spent many winters in Texas.

Bill is survived by his sons: Mark Jones and Eric Jones both of Taylorville; and grandchildren: Ryan Jones, Catherine Lagadia, Anna Jones, Carlos Jones, and Andrew Jones.

He was preceded in death by his parents and wife.

Mr. Jones will be cremated, and a private family graveside service will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville.

McClure Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Taylorville is assisting the family with arrangements. Memories of Bill, or condolences to his family, may be shared online at
