Sept. 6, 1931 — Feb. 6, 2011

Earl Jones
Earl Warren (Nick) Jones was born Sept. 6, 1931, in Wisconsin and departed this life Feb. 6, 2011.

Nick lived much of his life in Chicago, although 4 years of USN duty took him to Norfolk, Va. He married Norma Jean Kiesow in August 1951. Upon completion of military duty in August of 1954 he attended Rochester Institute of Technology, earning a BS degree in printing. Upon graduation in 1957 he served as production manager of a printing company in Des Moines, Iowa. In 1960 he opted for a change and became a Production Operator for Washington Krueger Company (a nationally known printer). In 1962 he was inducted into the Book Sales Division and transferred from Wisconsin to Chicago, where he worked until he retired in December 1987.

After retirement, Nick moved to Placerville to enjoy life and rural living in the area of the country which he had longed for more than 40 years, having spent the summer of 1950 working as a firefighter. In 1993 he joined Diamond Springs Printing in an effort of love for the industry and continued in this effort until January 2000 when he finalized his retirement.

Nick was dedicated to the printing industry, having spent 55 years in it. His customers were his prime interest while working and he strived to exude honesty and genuine interest in his customer’s concerns. He also was a card-carrying, die-hard Cubs fan since 1938.

Nick loved his Lord, his wife and family, the Chicago Cubs, the printing industry and his customers, as well as caring for his property and home. He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Thomas of Las Vegas; a sister, Bernice (Bettie) of Placerville; and a brother, David of Houston. Surviving him are his wife of 59 years, Norma Jean of Placerville; a daughter, Leona Rae of Illinois; and sons, Donn of Iowa and Verne and Mark of Illinois, along with their spouses; as well as 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

A memorial service conducted by Rev. Steve Dickerson will be held at the Placerville Church of the Nazarene, 6040 Mother Lode Drive, on Friday, Feb. 18, at 2 p.m. Interment will be private. Family and friends may sign a guestbook and leave condolences at chapelofthepinesfuneral.com. Remembrances may be presented to Snowline Hospice or to the Placerville Church of the Nazarene Building Fund. Arrangements by Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home in Placerville.
