Lester Lee Jones, 77, of Casper, was welcomed into Heaven on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
He was born in his home in Garland, Wyoming and grew up on the family’s farm in Byron, Wyoming, where he learned a strong work ethic that allowed him to work in many different industries throughout his life.
His greatest joys were spending time with his family, woodworking, and building things with his son and grandchildren, who believed he could build and fix anything. He also loved to hunt and tell stories (oilfield fairy tales) to anyone who would listen, especially his buddies. He cherished the opportunity to support his children and grandchildren in various sports and activities.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Diane; his children Monte (Jillian) Jones, Yvonne (Wig) Wigington, Angela (Rob) Hensley; his grandchildren, Isabella Jones, Taylor Millay, Jordan Millay, Ashleigh (Mick) McCorkle, Gabriel Wigington, Isaac Wigington, Elli (Jarod) McDaniel, Logan Hensley; his great granddaughter Raegan McDaniel; and countless friends, as he never considered anyone to be a stranger.
Services will be held at Highland Park Community Church on Tuesday, March 23 at 11:00 A.M.
In lieu of flowers, Les would have appreciated donations to Celebrate Recovery at Highland Park Community Church or True Care Women’s Resource Center (as he loved hearing the lullaby at the hospital announcing a new life)
Psalm 48:14 For this God is our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.
