JONATHAN R. BABIN
STANFORD - Jonathan R. "JB" "Jon" Babin, 38, of Stanford, Ill, passed away Sun., July 30, 2017, at his residence.
Jon was born Feb. 6, 1979, in Pekin, to Ken and Jackie (Gasper) Babin.
Surviving are his daughter, Ashley Babin, of East Peoria; his mother, Jackie of Morton; two brothers, Kevin Babin and Jason (Amanda) Babin, both of Morton; one sister, Kimberly Babin of Morton; his fiancé, Pleshette Dodson of Stanford; and nine nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Ken, in 2014.
Jon followed his passion for woodworking, which led him to working as a carpenter.
There are many things Jon enjoyed in life. He was most passionate about riding motorcycles and enjoyed sitting around bonfires with family and friends. He was also fond of music and loved to sing.
Jon could always be found helping other people. He found great joy in spending time with his family; he was a great father, son, brother, uncle, and fiancé. His sense of humor and his ways of making people laugh will be missed by many.
