Offer Condolence for the family of Willard JonesPrint Obituary & Condolences
Love Jim & Gerry
Although we won’t be having our luncheon get togethers like all the times before, we’ll still have those liver sausage sandwiches, and never forget those special times we’ve shared over the past 53 years as a close family. We’ll miss you terribly Bill, and Jim and I will continue to watch as many western movies in a day as we can.

Our heart’s are heavy and it’s still so hard to process that you’re no longer with us. You were far more than an Uncle to me but also like a second Dad. From a little girl and up, you secured a permanent spot in my heart as well as so many other’s. I will forever cherish all of the countless memories of so many good time’s we all had in New Jersey and Chicago! You never let me down and you never disappointed me! I will miss our phone chats and just hearing your laughter and the funny jokes and ‘Casino’ banter between you and Steve! Love you forever Uncle B and forever you’ll be 39! To all the family, friend’s, and loved one’s, our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Please accept out heartfelt condolences. Dee Dee & Steve (Steve A-Reno) Sarkis-Irish

Uncle Willard, When I think of him the following thoughts come to mind. Southern Gentleman, Self made man, Family, Honor, Dignity and Respect. What a role model he was to this family and all the lives he influenced. I loved and admired him and will miss him. Prayers to Aunt Betty and the family.
