[p]In loving memory of Jon Cooksey.[/p][p]To celebrate and remember this wonderful husband, father, friend and colleague, his wife and daughter, Heather and Georgia, are asking for donations to support two charities that meant a great deal to him: the Royal British Legion and Combat Stress.[/p][p] So much of Jon’s life was dedicated to keeping alive the memory of men who fought in wars around the world – making sure that some good would come out of their loss and ensuring that we would always remember them. But he was also always concerned with those who still feel the effects of war, which is why he supported these two charities.[/p][p] Donations will be shared between the two in memory of Jon who, though taken from us far too soon, will always be remembered fondly and with a smile.[/p]

Saddened to hear of Jon's passing. He was a lovely & knowledgeable gentleman, and it was a pleasure to collaborate with him and to have him as a guest speaker at the Filson Historical Society, Louisville, KY, USA. Our condolences this holiday season.

My sincere condolences to Heather and Georgia who will miss him deeply and all family and friends too (he must have many). I only know of John by his excellent work with the WFA and his other writing, always lucid and interesting. Blessings and shalom.
