Obituary for John Edward Jones

John E. Jones, 69, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho entered heaven on 28 December 2018 after a five year battle with cancer. Born 30 November 1949, to Ted and Reba (Lemons) Jones in Omak, Washington, John graduated in 1968 from Orofino High School in Orofino, Idaho. There he met and married his high school sweetheart, Linda (Schey), on Valentine’s Day 1969.

John served in the Idaho Army National Guard from 1969 to 1975. While serving, he earned his Associate in Applied Science degree in Drafting Technology from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston Idaho. His 40-year career as a draftsman, engineer, and construction manager began at Dworshak Dam in Orofino in 1972. His many projects ranging from dam construction, mining, and high rise development, to environmental remediation, took him and his family from coast to coast. He retired in 2013 when he and Linda settled in Coeur d’Alene.

An avid gun enthusiast, he enjoyed several forms of competitive target shooting. He was an active member of the Coeur d’Alene Rifle and Pistol Club where he enjoyed shooting weekly and mentoring youth in the shooting sports. He liked spending time in his shop gunsmithing, creating miniature steam engines and other detailed metalwork.

John is survived by his loving wife Linda of Coeur d’Alene; parents Ted and Reba of Okanogan, Washington; son Michael (Tammy) of Aurora, Colorado; daughters Kathy “KC” Peterson (Shanon) of Houston, Texas and Allison Arrington (Scott) of Carrollton, Texas; along with brothers Frank (Peggy) and Levi (Rene). His grandchildren, Carli, Brooke, Justin, Bailey, Sophia and Amy will miss him very much. He is preceded in death by his niece, Lisa Jones.

His family could not be more proud of the man John was, a man of faith, family, and integrity. We would like to sincerely thank John’s entire medical team, including Hospice of North Idaho.

A family visitation is planned from 1:00 to 2:00 PM on Thursday, January 3, 2018 at Yates Funeral Home – Coeur d’ Alene Chapel, 744 N. 4th St., Coeur d’ Alene, ID with a memorial service to follow at 2:00 PM.
