Donald Wayne Jones Jr

Born: 09/06/1962 Passed:

After a courageous battle with cancer, Donald Wayne Jones Jr., age 57, passed away in the early hours of May 19, 2020. He went peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family. Don was born in Barberton, Ohio on September 6, 1962 to Donald and Henda Jones. He graduated from Barberton High School in 1980 and had a long and rewarding career at Temperature Control Maintenance, Inc.

Don was a jack of all trades and his work ethic was admirable. He was highly artistic and musically talented. He had a love for gardening, wood working, and teaching his daughters everything he could about life and love. Don lived vicariously through them and always said they completed his bucket list. He touched more lives than he knew and will be missed greatly by so many.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Henda Jones. He is survived by his father, Donald Jones Sr; sister Kim Jones; daughters, Kristine (Kyle), Allyson, Mackenzie, and Madison Jones; childhood best friend Doug Dillon.

Cremation has taken place, and at Don’s request, no service will be held. His family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at UH Seidman Cancer Center in Wadsworth, as well as the Hospice of Western Reserve team that provided him and his family so much support and kindness in his final days. We also want to thank Steve and Jenny Saksa and his Temperature Control family for their support throughout this entire journey.   Special memories and words of comfort can be shared with the family online at

    Gone but not forgotten………. The world is a little sadder without you. Thinking back on all the memories with you and your family brings a smile to my face.. Fly high old friend, you will be missed.

  2. Kim Jones says:

    I still can’t believe you are no longer here with us physically, only in my memories and dreams. So many things we did not get to do and things I won’t get to learn from you. It makes me sad but also angry and those feelings may ease over time but missing you never will. Thank God you gave me four of the strongest, kindest and most caring nieces I could have ever asked for and within them, you will always live on for me. Thank you for being my rock. Thank you for being my brother.
