On Tuesday Dec. 25, William Pickering Jones III, of Darien lost his battle and passed away at the age of 27.
William was born on Dec. 12, 1991, to William P. Jones Jr. and Elizabeth Higgins Jones (Betsy and Bill) in Greenwich. He was the beloved big brother of Julia, Catherine and Elizabeth Jones.
He was the grandson of late Dr. and Mrs. H.P. Higgins of Toronto, Canada, and the late Mr. and Mrs. William P. Jones of Darien. William was part of a large and loving family and will be dearly missed by his many aunts, uncles and 36 cousins.
William was a second-year law student at Fordham University, and received his bachelor’s degree from McGill University in Montreal.
He had a beautiful mind and was passionate about everything he did, whether it was his work on legal initiatives, or just making his little sisters a new music playlist.
William was loving and compassionate to his family and friends, but also to anyone he met. He was truly one of a kind and will be dearly missed by those who were lucky enough to know him.
His family asks for your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.
