Jonathan H. "Jonnie" Pelton, 64, made his journey onto the streets of gold to be with Jesus on Saturday afternoon, November 25, 2017 while a patient at Unity Hospital in Rochester.
Jonnie was born in Warsaw, NY September 26, 1953, the son of Mary B. & Leo L. Pelton. He was preceded in death by his mother & stepfather, Mary B. & Leo W. Rauber. He loved his mother & there is no doubt a joyous reunion in Heaven has taken place between her & him since his arrival.
Jonnie loved applesauce; which seems most appropriate since he was named for the Jonathan apple variety. Another of his favorites was to go for car rides.
Jonnie is survived by his father, Leo L. Pelton of Attica; sister, Myrna Pelton of Wayland; niece, Clarissa (Brad) Smith of Arkport; nephews, Jordan (Lisa) Pelton of Hornell & Herbert Hill of Los Angeles, California; six half sisters & brothers; four step sisters & brothers; many great-nieces & great-nephews; and many very wonderful friends & caregivers at both Southview ICF in Wayland where he was a resident since it's opening almost 30 years ago & Greenbriar IRA in Rochester where he had resided for the last 10 months.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date, with burial at Heritage Hill Cemetery in Arkport, New York.
