Danny Kenneth Jones

July 11, 1947 — July 7, 2018

Danny Kenneth Jones, affectionately known as “Danny Boy,” was born in Dalark, Arkansas on July 11, 1947, the youngest child of Ara and John Jones. He departed this life on Saturday, July 7, 2018.

Danny was preceded in death by his father, John “Sugar” Jones, his mother, Ara Ellen Starks Jones, and three brothers: Bobby Dean Jones, William Henry Jones, and James “Bill” Arthur Jones.

Danny accepted Christ at an early age. He received his formal education, kindergarten through 12th grade, in Dalark and Arkadelphia, Arkansas. He attended and completed three years of higher education at Prairie View A & M University in Texas. Danny worked as a Support Counselor Aide at the Human Development Center in Caddo Valley. He worked as a High School Liaison in the Milwaukee Wisconsin School District some years ago. Danny also worked as a farmer, following in Dad’s footsteps.

Danny loved life. He truly enjoyed day to day connections with family, friends, school classmates, nieces, and nephews. Danny’s charm, wit, and wonderful sense of humor made his presence something all of us will miss.

Danny leaves to cherish his memory a sister, Bettye Jones Lusk and her husband, Rev. H. H. Lusk, Sr. of Seaside, California; a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, and many dear friends.

Memorial services will be a 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Mt. Olive AME Church in Dalark under the direction of Williams Funeral Home. 

His Journey’s Just Begun
Don’t think of him as gone away- his journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets- this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing that we could know today
How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
