Joe Barton Jones, 84, of Easley, South Carolina, husband of Linda Dacus Jones, passed away on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at his home. 

Born in Pickens County, he was the son of the late Roscoe Griffith and Julia Barton Jones. Joe, a beloved project manager in construction at Sadler Company who retired in 2003, led a fulfilling life shaped by his dedication to his work and his unwavering commitment to his family and community. In his early years, Joe pursued his education with determination, attending North Greenville University for two years before transferring to Furman University where he graduated college. While in college, Joe played baseball for both North Greenville University and Furman  University. Not only was Joe a skilled professional, he also served his country with honor by being in the Air Force for four years. His military service further exemplified his strong work ethic and sense of duty. He was a Mason at the Bates Masonic Lodge and dedicated to the fun and fellowship of the Hejaz Shriners of the Upstate. He also was very active with the American Legion Post 52 in Easley, South Carolina. He enjoyed all sports, especially football and baseball. His passion for baseball transpired to not only his son but his grandchild as avid players. He also enjoyed spending time outdoors through fishing and hunting. A dedicated supporter of Clemson Football, Joe was actively involved in the Wren Youth Association and played Church Softball, where he fostered friendships and camaraderie. Joe was a member of Rock Springs Baptist Church where he served as Sunday School Attendance Clerk and Usher. 

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Alison Suzette Jones, of Easley, a son, David Chadwick Jones (Liz) of Greenville; a sister Gail Jones Rauck (William, “Rock”) of Pensacola, Florida; five grandchildren, Morgan Wiles (Chris) of Easley, Kendal Owens (Andrew) of Easley, Carmen Wall (Jonathan) of Powdersville, Ella Jane Jones of Greenville, and Luke Jones of Greenville; and seven great-grandchildren, Dacus Wiles, Jones Owens, Melleigh Owens, Jaxon Wall, Juleigh Wall, Clara Wall and Canaan Wall.
