Deaths Elsewhere

September 05, 2004

E. Fay Jones,

83, one of the 20th century's leading architects, who is best known for Thorncrown Chapel, a web of wood, glass and stone in Eureka Springs, Ark., died Monday at his home in Fayetteville, Ark. He had Parkinson's disease.

A former University of Arkansas professor, Jones designed 135 homes as well as many chapels and churches in a career spanning half a century.

Thorncrown Chapel was voted the American Institute of Architects Design of the Decade for the 1980s, beating out such notable structures as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington and the World Financial Center in New York City.

Tom Capone,

38, a Brazilian music producer nominated for five Latin Grammys, was killed Thursday in a motorcycle crash in Van Nuys, Calif., hours after being shut out at the awards show.

Mr. Capone, whose real name was Luis Antonio Ferreira Goncalves, was widely known as a producer for many top names on the Brazilian music scene.

Jack Crow,

65, who brought the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory to Florida State University, died Friday of cancer in Tampa, Fla.

The lab, the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and one of only nine in the world, is used by scientists from various fields. It is considered critical to understanding matter and living structures.
