Kenneth Dale Jones, 80, a longtime resident of Moses Lake, passed away on Dec. 27, 2022. He is now in heaven with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Ken was born on Oct. 13, 1942, in Sunnyside, Washington, to Dale and Lyne Jones and grew up in Grandview, Washington. He graduated from Grandview High School in 1961. After high school, he attended Seattle Pacific University for three years before transferring to Western Baptist Bible College in El Cerrito, California, where he met his future wife, Karin Schoenfeld. They married in Bellevue, Washington, on Aug. 30, 1966. Ken served in the United States Army for three years from 1966 to 1969, after which he finished his teaching degree at Central Washington University.

Ken and Karin then moved to Moses Lake where he taught history and math at Chief Moses Middle School for 38 years, before retiring in 2008. During the summers, he ran his own custom harobedding business. Ken and Karin raised their two sons, Kevin and Kraig, on a small farm on the outskirts of Moses Lake, where they raised sheep and had a large garden and a small orchard.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents Dale and Lyne and brother Don; and is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Karin; his sons Kevin (Debbi) and Kraig (Diana); and three grandchildren Savanna, Adam and Ainsley.

Memorial services will be announced in early spring 2023.
