Dinbych mourns the sudden loss of Will Pierce Jones

It is with much sadness that I write to inform you of the passing of Will Pierce Jones. The news came as a big shock to those who knew Will or had recently seen him. He looked so well and healthy, and, even during the pandemic was attempting to live life to the full.
Many remember Will from the early days of the Club as a robust and committed scrum half, who enjoyed his rugby and was an integral part of the social life of any team for which he played. Following his retirement from playing, Will took up the whistle and became a respected referee in North Wales.
Will and Jean were important and valued members of the Club's first overseas tour to New Mexico in 1990. In preparation for the tour, the couple were instrumental in much of the fund raising and social events; they were always keen to be involved - standing on the periphery was not an option for either of them.
Will was fun to be around; he had an infectious laugh which attracted others to him. One always knew where one stood with Will; no matter the company, Will was always the same.
Despite Will’s involvement in various sports clubs in the town (Cricket & Golf were his other loves), family life was paramount to Will. The family was always there to help each other. Will and Jean were as one; they did so much together. Will supported Jean in many of her projects, including when Jean did so much of the work within our Clubhouse. The Club would have been a much poorer place without the contribution of the two of them.
Will's sudden passing must be a devastating blow for Jean and all the family. We send them our love and support at this most difficult of times. May God bless them all.
