Rev. Wesley Jones

January 16, 2021
Rev. Joseph Wesley Jones Jr., of Moulton, Alabama, died Sunday, Jan. 10 in Huntsville at the age of 67 following a brief illness.

A retired United Methodist pastor who spent almost 30 years serving 10 churches in the South Georgia Conference, Wesley is survived by his wife, June, of 48 years. They met at Andrew College (Cuthbert, Georgia), married in 1972 and graduated together from Andrew College and LaGrange College (LaGrange, Georgia).

Wesley received his Master of Divinity degree from Emory University's Candler School of Theology in 1987. He was active in local and international missions, including trips to Belize, Cuba and Panama. A book collector, voracious reader, singer, gardener, painter and part-time Santa Claus who had many other hobbies, he most enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and finding new destinations for them to visit together.

Preceded in death by his parents Joseph Wesley Jones and Beatrice Autry Jones, Wesley is survived by three sons: Joey (Gwen) Jones of Boone, North Carolina; Jonathan (Angie) Jones of Cullman, Alabama; and Jeremy (Merida) Jones-Batiste of Atlanta, Georgia.

He is also survived by six grandchildren – JW, Payton, Gabe, Jayce, Cassian and Violet – as well as two sisters, Pennie (Sam) Martin of Melbourne, Florida and Denise (George) Smith of Hiawassee, Georgia; and a brother, Dow (Darla) Jones of Rome, Georgia.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Moulton First United Methodist Church (
