Paul W. Jones Jr.

Paul W. Jones Jr. "Pete", 78, was received into the loving arms of Jesus on Wednesday, January 12, 2022. He was born on Friday, July 30, 1943 in Nashville, Tennessee to the late Paul and Margaret (Royal) Jones Sr. Paul graduated from Albany High School in Albany, GA, class of 1962, and went on to be awarded his Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Louisville in KY in 1967. He then moved to Akron, OH where he worked at Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for 35 years. Paul was an avid coin collector, outdoorsman, and enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, and traveling. Additionally, he was highly involved in the Norton community through many organizations, such as NASC, Odyssey of the Mind, Cub Scouts, as well as a member of Norton City Council. He was known for growing garlic across the world, and was known by the nickname Garlic Petey.

To Paul there was no such thing as a stranger, they were just friends you had not met yet. He always strived for integrity, and would always seek the best in people. Paul was always one to march to the beat of his own drum. He was known for having a fighter mentality and was never out of the fight. Paul was brilliantly eccentric, kind, patient, and always willing to teach people and one of the most famous lessons he taught his children was to "Be the captain of your own ship". Above all, he was extremely faithful to his family and loyal to his friends.

Paul was preceded in death by his sister, Margaret Marianna Jones. He is survived by wife of 45 years, Margaret; daughters, Sarah Tibaldi, Jessica (Michelle Brockman) Jones, Rachel (Daniel) Stahl; sons, Paul W. (Alysun) Jones III, Joshua (Stephanie) Jones; grandchildren, Benjamin Tibaldi, Connor Jones, Gabriella Brockman, Colin Stahl, Jacob Stahl, Jameson Jones, Freyja Jones, Saoirse Jones; brother, Kenneth Jones; and many other loving family and friends.

The family will greet friends at Bacher Moore Funeral Home, 3250 Greenwich Rd., Norton, OH on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 6 to 8 p.m., where a funeral service will be held on Friday, January 21, 2022 at 11 a.m. with visitation one hour prior. Rev. Dr. Mark T. Ruppert officiating. Interment will be at Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Dear Margaret and Family,
I am so deeply sorry to hear that Pete is gone, I remember knowing him since I was a small child, and during my life he was always a fun and supportive presence. Mark and I were especially delighted to get to spend so much wonderful time with Pete on our trip to Germany and France in 2011. He had such a different outlook; we were set on sights and museums, and he was set on people. Always talking to people in town, and quickly ending up friends. He even made a wonderful day of staying back in the hotel in Paris when his foot hurt; instead of being bored he reveled in getting to know the sweet owners. We love him and miss him and wish you deep comfort and love. Jen Ronyak

So true, that there was no such thing as a stranger to Pete. He was one of my 1st friends when I hired into Goodyear in 97, despite me being the new young guy, which I will forever be thankful for as I was new to the Akron area. He taught me not only about tires, but about everything else. God bless you and your family Pete!

Garlic Petey was one of a kind. A great spirit with impeccable energy. I met Petey through Jim Kutt my HS buddy. First of all, Petey would not be as great as he was without his loving wife MJ. I could write a book on Petey. I grew garlic in the UP our 2 month season for Pete. He was the Johnny appleseed of garlic. He spread his seeds throughout America. Actually, his garlic just sprouted up in my UP livingroom home in the dead of winter. His garlic like him, had a mind of its own. He was also the Walleye King of Ohio. I only outfished everyone on the boat with his lure, the Erie Deri. Pete was also the coin genious. Traveled afar for coin deals. Loved traveling with his brother to shows. I can say this, Pete loved his wife and children more than all of the dirt on the earth. They are all so special to me. He welcomed me into his family like I was one of them. His blessing to me would be a phone call or visit . . If I had the worst challenge of my life, Pete had me laughing in minutes. Pete loved being supervisor of any construction job. Pete was a farmer and an engineer. No one could EVER fill his shoes. The one story(of 10 million) I will share, is his drive up to my home in Michigan in sub zero temperatures, with his daughter Rachels car. The drivers window was missing. He taped a black garbage bag over it with duct tape. . He drove 4-5 hours in that vehicle. His nose hairs were frozen and ice was in the car. We warmed him up quickly and heated the car in our garage. You could never tell Pete it could not be done, Pete could do anything. Pete was a Saint! I know he in heaven. I will miss him terribly. May his great spirit continue on through MJ and his beautiful children. God Bless! Peace and Love to my Jones family.

Pete and I were friends, best buddies all through High School at Alban High School in Albany, Georgia. Some of my special memories of times spent with Pete are the many times we went spear-fishing in the cold waters of Radium Springs Creek. It was a joy to be reunited with Pete at our AHS class reunions over the years, and to spend time visiting with him and his brother, Ken. I cherish the wonderful memories of times with Pete. Pete my dear friend, rest in peace in the arms of Jesus till we meet again.

Pete and I were friends, best buddies all through High School at Albany High in Albany, Georgia. One special memory is spear-fishing with Pete in the cold waters of Radium Springs Creek, something we did together many times. It was a joy to be reunited with him at our AHS class reunions over the years, and to visit with him and his brother, Ken. I cherished our friendship, and now I cherish those great memories. Pete, rest in the arms of Jesus till I see you again.
