About Jon

Jon sadly passed away in his sleep on 13th September.

We all know Jon was no angel, but he wasn’t dealt the easiest hand in life. Having lost his Mum to cancer when he was young, he then lost his brother and Dad within a year of each other, both to suicide. They were his best friends and it visibly broke his heart.

Despite this, Jon was very loving and had a big heart. He was a character and those who knew him will always remember his cheeky, infectious laugh.

Jon sadly leaves behind 5 kids who love him dearly; Sway (14), Amelia (11), Henry (10), Max (5) and Albertjon (6 months). Jon will be greatly missed by his wife Lisa who he married 2 years ago, his brothers Lee and Alfie, and all his cousins, uncles, aunties and friends.

Tribute from his daughter Sway

Where will the money go?

Jon will have a simple funeral service, costing £3,150. The venue hire and food for the wake costs £480.

The money will be taken out by me (Jon’s cousin Lucy) and I will pay it directly to the funeral company and wake venue. If there is any money left over, I will give it to Jon’s children.

Any donation you can make would be greatly appreciated.


We are collecting photos for a slideshow at the wake and to print in an album for Jon's children.
If you have any you'd like to share, please post them on here or send them to me (Jon's cousin Lucy) or Lisa.

Thank you.
