Sherwood Jones

March 1, 1929 ~ March 15, 2020 (age 91)


The world lost an old fisherman on Sunday March 15, 2020 as Sherwood Jones passed away at his residence in Hutchinson, WV. He is finally at rest after a long fight against cancer.

Sherwood was born March 1, 1929 in Shinnston, WV the son of the late Atha Wilber and Beulah (Fitzwater) Jones.

Sherwood proudly served in the United States Navy. He worked at Anchor Hocking until its closure and than he worked for the Hutchinson Water Association until his retirement.

Sherwood enjoyed fishing, hunting and taking care of his yard and the yard of the Hutchinson United Methodist Church. He was never more content then when he was in his boat fishing on some lake or when he was in the woods with his hunting buddies Johnny, Dana, Jim and Carson.

In addition to his parents Sherwood was preceded in death by five brothers, Richard “Mickey” Jones, Neil Jones, Fredrick Jones, Donald Lee Jones and Douglas Leo Jones, two sister’s  Patricia “Patty” Brookover and Irene Bradley and two infant brothers.

Sherwood is survived by his wife of 64 years Josephine “Joey” Popovich Jones, who has loved and cared for him during his illness and was at his side as he left us. He is also survived by his son Ron Jones and wife Becky, and his daughter Vanessa Rodriquez both of Fairmont, WV.  He had four grandchildren Erik Jones, Kylie Jones and Cory Jones and wife Joni, and Rayanna Rodriquez. He also had three great grandchildren, twins Emilia and Sophia Jones and Adeline Jones. He also was survived by  two sisters Carol Oliveto of Lumberport, WV and Joyce Parrish of Clarksburg, WV.

The family would like to thank the West Virginia Caring and the VA Veterans Association for the services they provided Sherwood during his final days.

Graveside service will be on Friday, March 20, 2020 at 2:30pm at the West Virginia National Cemetery with Military Honors by the United States Navy.
