My Dad Thomas Lloyd Jones
Thomas Lloyd Jones 25.01.1926 – 04.07.2014
My Dad passed away in July last year. Unfortunately, I was in Spain at the time, so didn’t get to say goodbye. This does still distress me. But he was very ill and in hospital when I left, so the expectation was there that I would be too late getting home. I arrived home on the day before his funeral.
Dad was born in Richmond. You can see a little of his story here . Dad’s early years were tough, after the death of his Mum and Dad when he was 6 years old, but as an adult, he made a happy and successful life for himself with a strong marriage and three daughters, myself being the oldest. Dad lived to the great age of 88, and even now, 8 months after his death, life seems very strange without him.
