Will Andrew was born on December 25th, 1949 in Byhalia Mississippi to the late Connie B. Jones Sr. and Ethel DeBerry-Jones. He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at an early age and joined Union Valley Missionary Baptist Church. He would later join Greater Hope Missionary Baptist Church where he attended faithfully and served on the board of trustees.

Will Andrew attended Henry High School until he enlisted in the United States Army in 1969. He served as a Medic in the Vietnam War. He also held various positions such as Drill and R.O.T.C.

He then worked as a Mail Handler for the United States Postal Services, in which he served as a Union Representative until he retired in 2007.

After retirement, Will Andrew enjoyed outdoor recreational activities and playing computer games. Most of all he enjoyed family functions.

Will Andrew was joined in holy matrimony to Mary C. Jones, in which two children were born. He later was married to his former wife Lisa A. Jones.
