Bones died of pneumonia Dec. 30, 2003, shortly after turning 82, in LA. He had suffered a stroke in 2001.
A graduate of Columbia HS, South Orange, N.J., he came to Princeton and became a member of Quadrangle Club. He was the first in Princeton history to win a varsity letter freshman year, for diving.
During WWII, Bones was a Navy pilot at Pensacola and later taught other fighter pilots. After the war, he attended NYU Medical School as an Army reserve officer, served in Korea as a medical officer with MASH units, and earned the Bronze Star.
Bones later went to law school at USC, was admitted to the bar, and specialized in medical malpractice litigation. He pursued many outside interests, including racing ocean yachts, celestial navigation, golfing, horseback riding, and playing piano.
He is survived by his wife, Carolyn; 10 children by his first wife, Dr. Ana Doran Negri; 12 grandchildren; and a brother, David '50. To all the family, we extend our deepest and most sincere sympathies.
