Rex Jones Obituary

In Loving Memory

Rex Jones was born October 26, 1951, in Greencastle, Indiana, to Estel and Ann Jones. He passed away peacefully at his home in Terre Haute on November 1, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones. He was 72 years old.

Rex’s life was defined by unwavering faith in Christ and love for his family and community. After graduating from Asbury College and Asbury Seminary, Rex spent his life serving as pastor in the United Methodist Church. 

Rex’s devotion extended beyond the pulpit; he was a faithful visitor, always ready to listen to stories and offer encouragement. Rex loved all people and was present in their times of need. He also loved baseball, taking pictures of his family, and enjoying his grandkids; he spent hours with them playing euchre, board games, wrestling, and mushroom hunting. Rex loved Jesus and his family. He was humble and faithful, touching many lives and leaving behind a legacy of love. 

Rex was a loving and devoted husband to Luanne Jones. For fifty years together, they built a life of faith, an example of love and commitment for their children and all who knew them. Rex was a proud father to Brian (Beth), Kirsten (Jay), Devin (Kari), Ethan (Meagan), and Chicody (Nina). He instilled in them the values of faith in Christ, compassion, and perseverance. Rex is also survived by his brother, Richard Jones (Mary), and his grandchildren: Gwen, Sam, Tess, Zeke, Talan, Kenzlee, Sage, Sloane, Silas, Seraphina, Logan, Benaiah, Shiloh, and Dia. Rex will be deeply missed.
