Lewis Alfred Jones was born on September 14, 1921, in Blencoe, Iowa, the son of Lewis Earl and Flora Fern (Love) Jones.

Growing up, he attended Mobley country school in Monona County, Iowa. He completed grades one through eight before having to quit to help his father farm. He also had the responsibility of taking two purebred stallions to various locations in the area for area farmers to use as breeding animals.

As a young man, Lewis picked a lot of corn by hand. He entered several area hand corn picking contests around Blencoe and Little Sioux, Iowa. In the 1940s, he worked as a hired man for Fred Klean in Buena Vista County before getting his own farm.

In his spare time, Lewis enjoyed fishing, playing cards, and putting together jigsaw puzzles. He also loved spending time with his family and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

Those left to cherish his memory include his daughter, Dorothy (Robert) Brummer, of Albert City, Iowa; his daughter-in-law, Pam (Mike) Cronin, of Cleghorn, Iowa; his grandchildren: Kerry (Brian) Amendt, of Spencer, Iowa, Lane Jones, of Rembrandt, Iowa, and Jeanna Bergendahl, of Cleghorn, Iowa; and his great grandchildren: Tyler and Erika Amendt and Braxton Bergendahl; as well as extended family and friends.
