It was Wednesday morning in Indiantown, Florida. Davy Jones, 66, was visiting a ranch near his home to tend to his horses. Suddenly, he began to complain of chest pains and difficulty breathing. He was rushed to a hospital in Stuart, but it was too late.
Davy had died of a heart attack on February 29, 2012.
Today, since we won't have another February 29 for two more years, we remember Davy, and all of the good memories he left behind. All of the beautiful music he made. And all of the smiles he brought to people's faces, as well as tears for his departure.
Rest in peace, Davy, wherever you are. R.I.P. Davy Jones: 1945-2012
