Lindon, Utah — Jon Wayne Williams, beloved son, husband, brother, father, and friend to all, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, on August 22, 2022. Born December 9, 1957, in San Diego, California, to Wayne and Sylvia Williams, Jon grew up in Wheaton, Illinois, where he excelled in art and sports, and developed an insatiable curiosity, a great love for the outdoors, and a deep faith in the Lord. A kind and gentle man, Jon led an exemplary life of service, extending friendship and compassion to all who crossed his path.
Jon loved an adventure whether sky diving, flying small aircraft, scuba diving, sailing, skiing, camping, fishing, or traveling. Over the years, he became an accomplished gardener, cook, and animator, winning a local Emmy Award for his special effects during the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics. Jon had an incredible work ethic. He was an entrepreneur and loved being his own boss in both the computer graphics and senior care industries. He volunteered with youth in the church, taught Sunday School, was a leader in his congregation, and never hesitated to raise his hand to offer help and support for others in need.
He loved to read, he enjoyed music and movies, was fascinated by space, and occasionally tinkered with cars. But of all his loves, none meant more to him than his wife, his children, and the Lord. He served in the Washington Seattle Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was sealed in the Los Angeles Temple to his sweetheart, Rochelle, raised his five children in the church, and remained faithful until he finished his work on the earth.
Preceded in death by his wife, Rochelle, and granddaughter, Lila, Jon is survived by his parents, Wayne and Sylvia Williams; four siblings, Diana (Garry) Pace, Brent (Debra) Williams, Christopher (Teresa) Williams, and Karen (David) Edwards; his five children, Benjamin Williams, Daniel (Elizabeth) Williams, Garret Williams, Samantha (Conner) Monks, and Kimberly (Ely) Hansgen; and six grandchildren, Maddox, Weston, Gracie, Roczen, Romee, and Ancil.

I miss you already my friend.
I worked with Jon at Homefront. I was a bit leary when I found out that he was buying the company and had no experience with home health. I soon found out that not only was he one of the very best CNA's I had ever worked with, but one of the most Christlike, kind, happy, friendly, caring, loving, honorable, compassionate, gentle, hardworking, giving, empathetic, and sympathetic, people I have ever met!! He invited me to lunch and offered to buy me a pair of shoes and socks, because he was worried that I couldn't afford to buy them myself. I politely explained that I hated shoes and I only wore flip flops. He never allowed anyone in the company to work overtime, because it wasn't cost effective, except me. He knew that I was a single momma with 4 kids. He was always asking me if I needed anything for myself or my kids. One of my sons decided that he hated school and wasn't going to go. He ultimately landed in juvenile detention and then into a home in Idaho for troubled kids. I was devastated! Jon graciously allowed me to have Thanksgiving and Christmas off so I could go to Idaho to spend the holidays with my son. I had 10-15 patients that I took care of every day. Jon took amazing care of all my patients as well as his own for 3 days each holiday. When my daughter-in-law went into labor, he happily finished out my patients for the day, so I could be at the hospital for the birth of my grand daughter.He was definitely the very best boss that I have ever had!! I love and appreciate all that you did for me, my family, my patients, and Homefront, Jon!! I will always remember, love and miss you!! ❤️
Jon managed “Home Front Personal Care,” a company we utilized over the years for my Father’s care and most recently care for my Mom until she passed in February, 2022.
He strived to provide quality and compassionate caregivers for which I greatly appreciated. Jon will not be forgotten.
Many blessings and condolences to his family.
