Jon C. Henegar (Jay)
Born in Roanoke, VA on November 25, 1947, Born to Eternal Life on November 4, 2020 due to complications from Covid-19.
Admired and devoted husband of Linda for 48 years. Sweet father of Michelle (Ken) Anderson and Matthew (Avery) Henegar. Very proud papa of Noah, Jonah, Joy Henegar and Juniper Keller.
Further survived by sisters and brothers in law Diane Stelpflug, Al and Terri Athey and Allan and Pat Keene. Also survived by other relatives and many friends.
Preceded in death by his favorite mother in law, June Hansen, two weeks earlier.
Jon was the proud owner of Lakeside Foods for 33 years. Before owning his own company, Jon worked at several jobs, none of which he enjoyed all that well, but he did what he had to do to take care his family. One of his customers just this past week said that he was a south side legend, but his family always knew that. Jon was currently training the next generation to have a part in the business, his two grandsons Noah and Jonah.
After God, family was the most important thing to Jon. He loved getting things ready for a big family get-together and it showed. The details of his “Christmas village” that he would create each year brought back the nostalgia of Christmas past and was representative of a town he would have liked to live in. He also spent a great deal of time planning family vacations, organizing around the schedules of multiple families to accommodate everyone’s needs. We enjoyed our last vacation with him in August of 2020.
He was always mister fix-it, and boy did Linda keep him busy. Between his handiness and Linda’s creativity, they made a beautiful home. If he couldn’t fix it, he would definitely rig it up until it could be fixed. Whether it be an entire bedroom for his daughter, Michelle or a go-kart for his son Matthew. When asked how long a project would last his answer would always be…”two weeks.”
When Jon had leisure time he loved sitting on his patio enjoying his yard or feeding the birds. He enjoyed buying cool gadgets and toys for his grandkids, such as motorbikes and drones. He would end up playing with them just as much and took pride in seeing happiness within his family.
When thinking of Jon, one can’t help but remember his wit, humor and laughter. Along with those characteristics, he loved to teach the Word of God, and was a great teacher. He had a gift of being able to make difficult things easy to understand.
Jon and Linda both grew up in broken homes, and had a hard time in the beginning of their marriage with knowing how to deal and work through issues, but they did it. In 1977, Jon and Linda visited a little corner church in Bay View and found out about this man who can save you from your sins. They both gave their hearts and lives to the Lord.
There are so many, many things left unsaid about this wonderful, loving, caring man that we could write a book. To know him was to love him. He has left a big hole in our hearts and lives and will be missed every moment of every day. Until we meet again, may you dance on the streets that are golden.
Jon passed due to complications of COVID-19. In honor of Jon, face masks will be required.
For those unable or uncomfortable attending our services in person, this event will be live streamed through the church and also recorded. Recording will be uploaded to this page following the service date.
