SHERBORN – Owen Patrick Bingham, of Sherborn, Massachusetts, died after a tragic car accident in the early morning of February 12, 2022. Owen was 18 years old.
Owen was the brightest of lights. Personable and outgoing, his large and inclusive circle of friends was a testament to his interest in people, and his talent for genuine connection. Owen was a north star for many who knew and loved him.
Owen was a force for positive change in school and in his community. He was an alumnus of Project 351, a youth-service organization that mentors young people just like Owen: passionate, kind, and innovative thinkers. According to Project 351, “Owen beautifully exemplified the values and commitment of a 35ONE leader…[He] provided wisdom, belief, and mentorship… building unity across diverse communities.”
Owen, an all-around athlete, was also a captain of the Dover-Sherborn High School Golf Team and was proud to help bring the State Championship home this past Fall. His focus and dedication to his community, his team, and school resulted in his recent early decision acceptance to Layfayette University.
But the greatest joy of Owen’s life was his family. Owen is survived by his strong, loving, and devoted mother, Jennifer A. Bingham of Sherborn; his younger brother, friend, and confidant, Drew, 16, also of Sherborn; his dedicated and loving Nana and Grandad, Ann Marie and Peter Fabriele; his loving uncle Peter Fabriele and his wife Stephanie; his aunt Mary Lee and uncle Roberto Montesinos, all of New Jersey; and an extended community of friends, coaches, parents and teachers whom Owen loved deeply and admired fully.
A family of faith, those closest to Owen take solace in knowing that the many generations of aunts, uncles and grandparents who have gone before him are welcoming him into their arms.
