Lion Cyril Powell. Lions Club of Ross-on-Wye.

It is with great sadness that Ross-on-Wye Lions Club reports the death of Lion Cyril Powell.

Cyril joined Ross-on-Wye Lions in July 1973 and completed 46 years’ service. He was a millionth member of Lions Club International and was proud of the badge he received.

Cyril was a dedicated Lion who made a real difference to his community and was well-liked by all our members. He was a Past President.  For many years Cyril was at the helm of organizing the Lions annual Bonfire and Firework display.

In 2016 Cyril was made a Melvin Jones Fellow by Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF)in recognition of his commitment to serving the community. The fellowship is one of the Foundation’s highest recognitions, honouring the commitment to humanitarian service.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends. He will be sadly missed.
