[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]

I remember working with Jon at Shiplake. A lovely bloke, we always talked football and occasionally history. I always felt I missed out by not going on one of his battlefields trips.

Jon was very special, “ He could talk with crowds and keep his virtue and walk with Kings without losing the common touch” He will be sadly missed.
