Robert Jones

Obituary of Robert W. Jones

Robert Wynne Jones, 60, of New Canaan, CT passed away peacefully on Saturday October 14, 2023. He was born in Dallas Texas to Gordon and Marilyn Jones. Robert was the beloved husband to Floriana DiFulvio Jones of New Canaan.


Robert worked many years in sales for Forbes and was a VP Global Group Publisher at Asset International.  Robert had many gifts and interests but most of all he enjoyed the gift of friendship of many.  He was a warm and welcoming soul who passed his love of sports onto his two children, Maggie and Robby. From recreational soccer and football teams to travel baseball, Robert always jumped at the opportunity to volunteer coach for the New Canaan community. Coaching, for Robert, wasn’t all about the trophies. Instead, it was about building team chemistry, sportsmanship, and most of all, having fun. 


Robert is survived by his son Robby Jones and daughter Maggie LaRosa (son-in-law, Alex, and grandchildren Gabriella and Ruby). Robert’s siblings, Lanah Holden (husband John, nephews Taylor and Wynne), Lee Jones (wife Claire, nieces and nephews Sally, Marcy, Gogo, Page and Shafer), John Jones (wife Beth nephews Alex and Wade), Penn Jones (wife Erin nieces and nephew Hayley, Whitney and Holt).


A memorial service for Robert will be held on Saturday October 28, 2023 at Hoyt Funeral Home 199 Main Street, New Canaan, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Burial will be private.
