Precious Jewell Majors Sr., 72, Kokomo, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017. On Nov. 15, 1945, he was born in Guthrie, Tennessee, to the late James W. and Ezma (Rayburn) Majors.
After high school, Jewell moved to Kokomo, working at The Steel Mill, before spending 30 years at Chrysler. He retired in 1991 from Department 91 as a UAW 685 member. Jewell had a lot of hobbies, including collecting guns and playing numbers. He loved cars and spent hours restoring classic muscle cars, watching racing and going on road trips. Jewell also enjoyed telling stories and watching "them shoot 'em up, bang, bang" movies and cartoon movies. More than anything, he loved his grandkids and all of his "adopted" family.
Jewell is survived by his sons, Jewell (Tabitha) Majors, Indiana, Jeremy (Brandi) Harris, Indiana, Matthew (Raquel) Harris, Arizona, Darren (Kareem) Harris, St. Louis, and Patrick (Paula) Majors, California; and daughters, Lanelle Majors, Arizona, and Nikita Majors, Indiana. Jewell's pride and joy were his grandkids and great-grandkids, Briana (and children), Quinton (and child), Precious Jewell (Nia), Layla, Shirlinda (Robert and children), Corwin, Alexandria (and children), Devonte, Dream, Patrick Jr., Jaxton, Vetreck (and children), Valecia, Ja'Maryn, and Ca'Shayla. He also leaves behind his significant other, Debra Randolph, and one sister, Marva.
In addition to his parents, Jewell was preceded in death by sisters, Mildred, Bernice and Josephine, and brothers, Elex and James.
