December 28, 1946 - February 24, 2020
Casey Eugene Jones, 73 of O’Fallon, MO and formerly Mt. Vernon, IL died Monday, February 24, 2020. He was born December 28, 1946 to Casey B. and Aileen Jones (Wintz). Devoted husband of 52 years to Janet (Harp), loving father to Deborah (Glenn) Lodge and Jennifer Jones-Peirce. Loving Grandpa to Christina (Matthew) Hiatt, Jennifer (Jacob) Springer, Casey Elizabeth (Nathan) Halstead, Harrison Lodge, Oliver, Tatum and Harper Peirce. Doting great grandpa to Stephen and Jace Hiatt, Lucas Springer, Jackson and Emilia Halstead. He was preceded in death by his sister Patty Ann Colp, son Clifton Bradley Jones and great grandson Thomas Johnston Halstead. Casey was a former member of the Kiwanis Club in Mt. Vernon and even served as President for a term. He attended Logan Street Baptist Church and later The First Presbyterian Church in Mt. Vernon. Casey attended Bethel Grade School and Mt. Vernon Township High School. He spent most of his life working in automotive sales at Irvington Motors, Casey Jones Dodge, W-G Motors and Plaza Infinity. He was patient, kind, calm and gentle – not your typical “car salesman”! In his younger years Casey enjoyed sailing, tennis and racquet ball. If Janet hadn’t objected he would have loved to retire and live on a sailboat. His sense of adventure was amazing and he was always willing to try something new…at least once. From snorkeling to sky diving he found his greatest pleasure behind the wheel of a Winnebago exploring the scenic routes across America. As a person who loved to entertain, Casey proclaimed numerous times over the years that when he died he didn’t want a funeral, but instead a party to be held in his honor. Please join Casey’s family at the Elk’s Lodge, 1107 Jordan, Mt. Vernon, IL on Saturday, March 14th from 4:00 – 8:00 PM as they honor his final wish. Food, drinks and good memories will be abundant. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Thomas Johnston Foundation (charitable organization that provides awareness and support to families who have a child suffering from CDH, the disease that took our great grandson) or Angels on Assignment First Methodist Church, Mt. Vernon, IL.
