JAY: Lion Antony (Tony)

Bognor Regis Lions Club.

It is with very great sadness that Bognor Regis Lions Club announces the death of Charter Member, Anthony (Tony) Jay, MJF, on 2nd August 2019.

A Lion for 54 years, he served as President on three occasions and was particularly active in fundraising. He was on the Carnival Committee for many years and also involved with the Birdman Competition which the Club introduced to Bognor.

A Surveyor by profession, his expertise came to the fore when some 35 years ago the club converted a derelict barn into the Rowland Rank Centre, a community hall still managed by the club.

At District level, he was Deputy District Governor (now replaced by Region Chairmen) for a year.

Ill health reduced his activities over the last couple of years but his energy, wit, and generosity of spirit will be very greatly missed.
