Your dad was a great guy he will be truly missed. I have many fond memories of him at your house when we use to ride dirt bikes. I had seen him over the years in town and was always a pleasure to talk to him and your mom.

First off, let me give condolences to all of the Jones family for the loss of a great man. I worked with Bill from 87-93 at Carle’s. Always laughing and joking. Later when I was announcing game’s at the high school, him and his wife sat right in front of me always routing for the Blue Devils. I don’t think he ever missed a game. We had odd thing thing going on where we’d see each other at random all over New York State. From Watkins Glen one week to Old Forge the next. We’d just laugh. Such a nice guy and be proud to call him dad, grandpa, etc. Bill, you were awesome!

We wish to extend our condolences to Loretta and family.
We will always remember Bill as an exceptional gentleman and genuinely nice man. A man of integrity, who knew the value of hard work, who was possessed of immense talent and knowledge. He was also a great teacher who willingly shared his knowledge with others and we witnessed his patient guidance many times. His dignity, his sense of right and his wisdom made him a leader (though he wouldn't admit it) and the sort of man others aspired to be.
I still often miss the long conversations we used to have about all sundry subjects. His knowledge was broad, he had a fine sense of history and a delightful philosophical wit.
What we admired most, though, was that wife and family came first with Bill and he took such great pride in you all. He leaves a fine legacy and he will be remembered well.
Bill made a difference.

Loretta and the entire Jones family, please accept my condolences on the loss of Bill, the world is a better place because of him. Bill was more than a friend to my Dad, more like a brother. They shared much, a genuine respect and friendship, both at work and the many adventures, especially with the custom motor homes. Today and everyday at my job I am reminded of the 20 years they worked so well together. It was nearly 5 years ago that I lost my Dad, also at 82. Like my Dad I know family always came first with Bill. I love my Dad and I love the friendship they shared, I am so sorry for your loss, Dan.
