Thomas Arthur Jones, 59, of Harrisburg, Missouri, passed away Saturday, July 11, 2020, at Boone Hospital Center surrounded by family.

Because of COVID-19, there will be a private family funeral.

Tom was born Sept. 9, 1960, in Festus, Missouri, to the late Willis and Gertrude Jones. On March 26, 1983, he married Alice Lorinda “Lori” Bryson in Columbia. He was a jack of all trades — mechanic, truck driver and heavy-equipment mechanic. Tom could fix just about anything.

Tom is survived by his wife, Lori; son, Matthew T. Jones of Harrisburg; daughter, Megan Jones (Logan Lasley) of Columbia; one sister, Carolyn Adolf (Charles) of St. Charles, Missouri; four grandsons, Gavin, Kaylob, Austin and Tucker; brother-in-law, Roy Watanabe; several nieces and nephews; and many cousins.

He was preceded in death by two sisters, Barbara Watanabe and Mary Ackers.
