    William Joseph JONES - Dolforgan Hall, Kerry. The funeral service of Mr. William Jones who passed away at Plas Cae Crwn Residential Home, Newtown, on the 17th July, took place at Kerry Parish Church on Saturday, August 1st 2015. St. Michaels Church was filled to capacity when a large gathering of family members and friends, and further associates from the road haulage fraternity gathered to pay their respects to a former colleague. The service was conducted by the vicar Rev. Alex Mayes and Mr. Gwynfryn Evans and the tribute was given by his nephew Mr John Jones. The bearers were Thomas Jones, Old House, Edward Jones, Weston, and Barry Jones, Bishops Castle (all nephews) and four close business friends, John Pugh, Newcastle-on-Clun, Richard Edwards, Llanfair Caereinion, Tony Hughes, Kerry and Andrew Rowlands, Llangurig. The church stewards were Bryan and Trevor Jones, Bishops Castle and Gareth and Tommy Webster, Aberaeron, Erfyl Davies and Philip Jones, Kerry. The car parking and traffic stewards were Messrs. Maldwyn, Gareth and Christopher Evans. As a teenager, William planned to join a family member with Manchester City Police Force, but the critical situation of the war in 1943, meant that this had to be put on hold, and he remained with his parents on the farms of Old House and Weston, Kerry, at least for the time being. William became involved in local affairs and the interest in going to Manchester lessened considerably, later he joined his brothers, Pryce and George in the farming partnership and they had many happy years together. Their father retired in 1970, and William decided to undertake and expand the haulage work undertaken, and to set up a new haulage business at Dolforgan, which was run successfully until his retirement in June 1994. He enjoyed travel, and visited Australia and New Zealand and had a memorable holiday in the United States, before sadly failing health brought a difficult time when he became so grateful for the assistance of the medical and nursing staff at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, and Llanidloes Hospital and home care services provided by Abba and Allied Care, and finally Plas Cae Crwn Residential Home. The family thank everyone for the cards and messages of sympathy, and the attendance at the funeral. They also express their appreciation to Richard and Mandy Parkes and staff of Leach & Son, Newtown for the funeral arrangements carried out with much dignity and thoughtfulness.
