At private funeral, Davy Jones remembered for "a blissful lightness of being"

Davy Jones: Monkees star dead at 66

Funeral services were held Wednesday for Davy Jones, who emerged as a teen hearth-throb during the 1960's as the lead singer of the pop group "The Monkees."

(CBS News) Davy Jones, one-time teen heartthrob and The Monkees singer, was remembered Wednesday at a private funeral service at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Indiantown, near his home in Florida

Immediate family including his wife and daughters attended the service, publicist Helen Kensick said. Jones' body was to be cremated and his ashes returned to his birthplace in Manchester, England, she said.

The Rev. Frank O'Loughlin, who presided over the service, said several of Jones' own songs were played, including "I'll Love You Forever" and "Written in My Heart." In his own remarks to mourners, the priest compared the singer to the diminutive hero of "Lord of the Rings," saying the author J.R.R. Tolkien portrayed a world not unlike the one Jones offered fans.

"He wrote about a quiet, gentle, contented people," O'Loughlin said in his sermon, a copy of which he shared with The Associated Press. "A people for whom life was bright, neighbors friends, daydream believers with an absolute absence of burden who took themselves lightly lighter than air. Wasn't that what David conveyed to the world, a blissful lightness of being?"

O'Loughlin said Jones' widow, Jessica Pacheco, brought her husband's cremains to the church and her brother Joseph Pacheco, the singer's manager, gave a eulogy.

Besides family, the man who first trained Jones to ride racehorses was in attendance, as were members of his current band, who wrote prayers they read at the service.

No surviving members of The Monkees, a made-for-TV band that scored musical and TV success in the 1960s, attended the service.

Jones died suddenly after suffering a heart attack in Florida last week at the age of 66.

A public memorial service will be held next week in Manchester, where Jones grew up, while another public service is yet to be confirmed but may be held in either Los Angeles or New York, Kensick said.

It is possible that Jones' Monkees bandmates - Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith - will perform at one of the public memorial services.

According to Reuters, Jones was stricken while attending to horses he kept in Indiantown, Fla., about halfway between the Atlantic coast and Lake Okeechobee.

The father of four daughters, Jones lived with his third wife, Jessica Pacheco-Jones, in Hollywood, Fla.

Jones' four daughters Talia Jones, Sarah McFadden, Jessica Cramer and Annabel Jones released a joint statement Thursday thanking fans for the response to their father's death.

"Our family has been greatly comforted by the support and love of everyone who has reached out to us," they said. "Knowing that so many people around the world were so affected by our dad's life and music makes us feel connected to you all."


Who was Davy Jones?

To those of us who loved him so, when we were around 10 years old, he was a fantasy boy.  He only existed on our televisions, our record players, and in our dreams at night.

There has to be power in a million little girls loving someone so much, and there WAS.
Davy seems to have felt this, and accepted the responsibility of our feelings.  To the last day, he was always so kind and patient when we met him, and we suddenly couldn't speak...
we burst into tears...
or we hugged him and refused to let him go.

Did I say MEET HIM??   Yes, many of us met him, and walked away on clouds of joy for days from it.   I was one of the lucky ones, when he came to Myrtle Beach, SC way back in 1998. Since then, the stars have seen fit to put me in his shining presence many other times. I cherish them all.

He really WAS that boy who had stars in his eyes and fell in love every episode.
He will always be that boy. He belonged to ALL of us.   It just wouldn't have been fair for one woman to own this beautiful "god" of ours, and I'm not sure anyone ever did.
He may have paid a dear price for our love.

We also have paid a price for loving him so...the rest of our lives will be spent with a big piece of our heart missing. Somehow we thought he would live forever...outliving us, surely.  Instead we have spent days mourning our first love, and the last bit of our childhood dying.

Rest in peace my gentle, beautiful, Prince. The love that follows you is as big as all the galaxy.
