DeWayne Jones, son of the late Theodore and Alberta, entered Heaven with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on November 14, 2021, at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center. He was surrounded by his beloved wife, Judith, with whom he celebrated nearly 48 years of marriage, and children Erin (Daniel), Gregory (Janelle), Jennifer, and Stefanie (Keith).
Also surviving are his brother Lonny (Randy); nephew Shawn and niece Shannon. Left to cherish his memory are grandchildren: Carnando, Evan, Joshua, Katie, Levi, Liam, and Noah.
After school at Franklin High, DeWayne continued his education at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, where he earned his instrument-rated private pilot’s license. Later, DeWayne was graduated from Williamsport Area Community College, affiliated with Pennsylvania State University, where he received a degree in aviation maintenance.
After serving three years in the United States Army in Germany, DeWayne was employed by Aviation Corporation in Williamsport and many years at Jim Dewar Oldsmobile. He was a charter member of Westmont Baptist Church, which he helped build, and belonged to Ebensburg Flying Club and Johnstown Rod and Gun Club.
The family deeply appreciates the loving care and compassion from DeWayne’s doctors and other medical staff.
Expressions of sympathy may be directed to Westmont Baptist Church: 115 Jeffrey Drive, Johnstown, PA 15905; Nardecchia Spay and Neuter Group: 131 Damian Drive, Johnstown, PA 15905; or the West Hills Fire and Ambulance: 1000 Luzerne Street, Johnstown, PA 15905.
. . . but we are of good courage and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the LORD (2 Corinthians 5:8, NASB).
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs . . .
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:4-13, NIV).
The family is being served by Picking-Treece-Bennett Mortuary. Special thanks to Tom Dixon and staff.
A service will be announced at a later date.
