Will Roger Jones, 86

HAMPSTEAD — Will Roger Jones, known to his family as Pepa, peacefully passed away on November 17, 2021. At the age of 86 years old, he truly lived a life worthy of celebrating.

He was born August 27, 1935 in Ash, North Carolina. He married his beloved wife Carol in 1963. Will was a skilled carpenter, a selfless caregiving husband, an encouraging father, grandfather and great grandfather, and a loving friend to many. Will’s honest love and generosity will be remembered by all who knew him. He was a man you wanted to know, a man with a story to tell, a story you wanted to listen to. He had a captivating personality, an infectious laugh, and an abundant tomato garden every summer that he shared with everyone he knew. Pepa was a true legend and his life and memory will forever be cherished.

He is survived by his son, Roger Dale Jones (wife Robin) of Hampstead, two granddaughters, Caitlin Kuperus (husband Jesse) and Hilary Steinkamp (husband Michael), and his four great-grandchildren, Jones and Avett Kuperus and Abraham and Elizabeth Steinkamp.

Will was preceded in death by his wife of 39 years, Carol Stidham Jones. He was also preceded in death by his siblings: Wadus Jones, Cecil Jones, Earl Jones, Roscoe Jones, Billy Jones and Bernice Rich.

Though he is already missed greatly and the sorrow in our hearts is great, we rejoice in knowing he is now in the presence of his Lord and Savior, his siblings, and his beloved wife.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 AM Saturday, November 27, at Andrews Mortuary, 17730 Highway 17 North, Hampstead, where friends may call from 10:00 AM until time of services.  A graveside service will follow at Sea Lawn Memorial Park.  Please sign the online Guestbook at www.andrewsmortuary.com
