PLAISTOW, NH - David Michael Jones, 46, passed away on April 30, 2021, after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma. He was surrounded by loved ones around the clock helping to care for him. His beloved wife of 14 years, Maria was by his side as he left us and gained his heavenly body.
David was born and raised in Haverhill, MA and was a graduate of Haverhill High School and Northern Essex Community College. David truly found his calling when he went to work for Walmart-Plaistow, NH, earning his way to Department Manager and later taking a position at the Salem, NH store helping to train others in management. For 20 yrs he touched the lives of so many coworkers and customers. Some of his deepest and most meaningful friendships, and experiences were with the 'family' he created there. His favorite statement as a manager and friend was "Smiles Are Free."
David loved his family more than anything and spent all of his free time truly having fun with his wife and kids. He loved a good ice cream, watching sports, working on his sports cards business, hiking, going to North Conway, Plum Island Beach or any adventure he could think of. There was never a moment when he wasn't joking, or smiling. His personality lit up a room and he instantly made friends with anyone he came to know.
