In 2011 he became a Trustee of the Gresford Trust where he gave
generously of his time and became Chairman of the Trust in 2014
where he rapidly made his mark. His hard work, his sound advice and
his engaging personality will be sadly missed and we extend our
deepest sympathy to his wife Brenda and the family in their great
loss, our thoughts go with them at this sad time.
