Donald Jerome Jones, 86, stepped into the arms of Jesus, Tuesday, November 21, 2023. Don was born in Waxahachie, Texas on March 22, 1937, to JR and Blanche (Sis) Jones.

 

Don married the love of his life, Jean, November 24, 1956, and began his career as a computer programmer with IBM in downtown Dallas. Don changed the course of his life when God called him into the ministry. He pastored churches in Haskell, Tenaha, Port Neches, and Brookeland, Texas and in Tioga, Louisiana. While in Louisiana he went back to computer programming with the city of Alexandria. Don and Jean eventually moved back to Duncanville, Texas where he worked in sales until his retirement. They later moved to Corsicana, Texas.

 

Don was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Patricia Shelton and her husband, Guy, who was a special friend to Don.
