On Saturday, those close to Annie Lennox‘s daughter’s boyfriend Ian Jones gathered together to mourn and honor the deceased model.
ICYMI: Last week, the 32-year-old tragically drowned after while kayaking with girlfriend Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann on the Hudson River in New York. In fact, Ian passed away trying to save the famous musician’s daughter.
The Lennox family and other attendees met up in Bensalem, Pennsylvania for Ian’s mother, Sherron Jones‘ planned memorial service.
It’s reported that Tali’s boyfriend’s body will be cremated with his ashes taken to Yardley, Pennsylvania as well as an additional memorial service to be held in New York.
The photographer’s obituary noted:
“His life was filled with creativity. Ian was a successful model with IMG in New York. Not only was he a beautiful model, but he was a beautiful soul. He was a kid at heart, funny, down to earth, caring man. He was a bright light to all who knew him.”
Since his passing, it’s been revealed that the happy couple spent the night before the incident at a birthday party for a friend in the home of hotelier Andr├â┬⌐ Balazs. Unfortunately, the day after the event, when they went out in the kayak, it capsized by the current and Ian drowned by the weight of his clothes.
What incredibly tragic news.
Our hearts go out to those close to Ian during this trying time.
