Gary Wayne Jones

Gary Wayne Jones, 69, of Pendleton, passed away on Tuesday July 2, 2024. He was born on June 7, 1955 to William Jones and Geneva Wells. 

Gary married the love of his life Doris on July 28, 1972, their daughter Jenny was born, and they resided in Noblesville for many years. He moved to Pendleton, IN in 2021 to be with his daughter and son in-law, after losing the love of his life whom he was married to for 50 years. Gary was a kind, sweet, gentle man who never met a stranger and always took care of the people he loved. He was a joy to be around and we are very thankful he lived with us for the past three years. We lost him way too soon.

Gary retired from Carmel Street Department after many years of service. He was a hard worker and enjoyed his retirement years very much. Gary loved to travel with his wife, especially spending time at the beach and Brown County. He loved taking his girls to Gulf Shores, AL for many years until his wife Doris passed away. Gary loved camping and did so for over 40 years. He loved fast cars, anything that had a motor, and loved watching his “car shows”. Gary restored a 1955 Chevy for many years until he sold it, and eventually purchased his '67 Chevelle. He was extremely proud of his car and definitely may have burned rubber a few times, something he would be very proud of. Gary so loved his Barn/Garage and spent a lot of time in there, and was looking forward to it being completely finished. 

Gary will be missed beyond words and are hearts are broken. He was just not ordinary, he was extraordinary. Men like him are very rare these days. He taught me so many things but most of all he showed me what true kindness and love is. 

Gary is survived by his daughter, Jenny (Trent) Altherr; grandchildren, Brianna Anderson, Elizabeth Anderson, Cody (Allie) Altherr, Hailey Altherr, and Schyler Altherr; great grandchildren Ruth Altherr and Cooper Altherr; siblings, Laura Moore, Tammy Reynolds, Terry Blankenship, and Larry Blankenship; and many other family members.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beautiful wife, Doris Jones; brother, Chuck Jones; sister Sandy Jones; and several other dear family members.

Services will be held at 1:00 pm, with visitation starting at 11:00 am, on Monday, July 8, 2024 at Randall & Roberts Funeral Home, 1150 Logan Street in Noblesville. Burial will follow at Crownland Cemetery in Noblesville.
