Wayne Eugene Jones, Sr., age 92, of Salem Twp. passed away peacefully into our Lord's Arms on Saturday. March 9, 2019. He served in the US Coast Guard as a Steward's Mate, First Class on the USS Gulf Port during WWII. He married Agnes Tomashosky on May 10, 1952. They had two children; Wayne Jr. (Elizabeth) of Export and Carol Ann (John) Durco of Greensburg. He was extremely proud and blessed with two granddaughters; Lauren Jones and her friend, Rob Titterington, and Alissa May (Robert) Carbaugh all of Greensburg. Our father was a very humble and modest man, never one to boast or brag. Those who knew him know his accomplishments that filled his lifetime. He was a kind and generous man to everyone that he met. He now, we're sure, happily joins his wife after waiting since her passing on August 14, 1998. Although our hearts are aching with sorrow, we will remember our father as the kindest soul, and much deserving of the peace and joy that can only be found in Heaven. We will "Be Careful" Dad! A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Sylvester Roman Catholic Church in Slickville Tuesday at 10:30am. Interment with Military Honors will follow at Calvary Hill Cemetery in Crabtree. Arrangements by the Bash-Nied Funeral Home, 152 Abbe Pl., Delmont (724-468-8381). Memorial contributions may be made to the Wildlife Works, Inc., PO Box 113, Youngwood, PA 15697. www.bash-niedfuneralhome.com.
