“Brady Bunch” star Maureen McCormick, aka “Marcia Brady,” who famously shared an on-screen kiss with Davy Jones on the 70’s sitcom is finally breaking her silence on the singer’s death… telling TMZ, “Davy was a beautiful soul.” McCormick tells TMZ, Davy “spread love and goodness around the world. He filled our lives with happiness, music, and joy.” She adds, “He will live on in our hearts forever. May he rest in peace.” Jones guest-starred on “The Brady Bunch” back in 1971, playing himself in an episode where Marcia tries to convince him to sing at her prom.
