David Bowie's father was John Jones (full name Haywood Stenton Jones), who died
in 1969. His mother is Peggy Burns (full name Margaret), of Irish Catholic
ancestry. Now over 80 years old, she reportedly lives in an exclusive
600-pound-a-week retirement home in England.
He had an older step brother, Terry via his mother's previous marriage, who
suffered for many years from schizophrenia, and was in and out of mental
institutions over the years. Terry committed suicide in 1985. Bowie did not
attend the funeral, fearing his presence there would turn it into a media event.
He also has a step sister named Annette on his father's side. The family lost
contact with Annette.
