Jon Leslie Billington, age 60, Town of Lind, formerly of Weyauwega, passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday, July 16, 2023. He was born on May 31, 1963, to the late Richard and Eunice (Koplien) Billington.
Jon had recently retired after an impressive career of 39 years at the Waupaca County Highway Department. His dedication and hard work were evident in his long-standing service to the county. Throughout his career, he displayed a strong work ethic and commitment to ensuring safe and well-maintained highways.
Beyond his professional achievements, Jon was a loving father and grandfather who cherished his family above all else. He was the most amazing and supportive dad and grandpa. His children and grandchildren held a special place in his heart, bringing him immeasurable joy.
One of Jon's notable qualities was his quick wit. He always had a great story up his sleeve that could bring laughter to any room. His warm and friendly nature endeared him to those around him, making him a cherished friend to many. Outside of work, he was a great, avid hunter and fisherman.
He is survived by his loving children: Courtney (Nick) Marks, Brooklyn (Caleb) Billington, and Steven Billington. He also leaves behind three adored grandchildren: Tenley, Teagen, and Taysom Marks. Jon is further survived by his siblings: Pam (Kevin) Welch, Barb (Chad) Stilen, Ben (Michelle) Billington; as well as aunts Joanne Gettendorf and Pat Billington; uncle Gary Weiss; loving, extended family members including cousins, nieces, nephews, and many dear friends. Jon was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Brad Billington.
