AVOW John Leece Jones Donations
Memorial donations for former chairman John Leece-Jones will ultimately go towards an appropriate memorial in our community.
The Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW) lately announced the death of beloved chairman and community champion John Leece Jones. Consequently, donations will go towards a fitting memorial tribute in Wrexham town centre and Wrexham County Borough.
The treasured chairman John Leece Jones sadly passed away whilst volunteering on behalf of AVOW. Notably, John has been a trustee of AVOW since March 2011. Equally important, John served as Company Secretary, Chair of most committees and AVOW Executive Chairman. Therefore, John has been an enormous asset to AVOW. It’s no surprise that all the staff, trustees, and many organisations he supported will sadly miss him.
Community champion John was a local lad born in 1948. In due time, he went on to receive his education at Grove Park School for Boys, Wrexham and Manchester University, where he gained a law degree. John Leece’s devotion to public service was an example for all in the Third Sector and public life in Wrexham. His wife Sali and son John (Jnr) survive him.
People will fondly remember his worthy contribution to Wrexham and the wider community. Condolences go to his family and friends at this challenging time.
