Jono was a go-getter who was full of enthusiasm for everything in life. He packed in many experiences including sporting events, visiting football stadiums, golfing holidays, trips to Iceland, New York and Las Vegas. He particularly loved family holidays abroad and in the UK, especially if they included golf, not to mention crazy golf which always ended up being very competitive. Football was his main passion and many weekends were spent by the family watching him play in his local junior and senior teams.
He had an infectious smile and personality, the kind that drew people towards him. His caring nature and willingness to help anyone was appreciated by everyone he knew. His motto was “whatever I do in life it will be something I enjoy”
His greatest achievement was to qualify as an accountant enabling him to later set up his own business. Little did any of us know that this would only be for 9 months as on 14 December 2022 all our lives were shattered by his sudden death from Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
He had always appeared fit and healthy and was no different on that day. He had spoken to his Mum in the afternoon and finished by saying he was going to catch up on a couple of hours sleep. Tragically only 45 minutes later his heart, suddenly and with no warning, stopped beating.
We are so blessed to have had such a wonderful son and brother for Bex and for what you were able to achieve in only 27 years. It is such a shame you were unable to enjoy your planned wedding day and go on to complete your dream of building your own house.
We will now carry on your drive and enthusiasm for life by raising money to hold screening events for 14-35 year olds in the local Driffield area.
Love Always, Mum, Dad and Bex
This memorial fund has been set up by the family to help CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) raise awareness of young sudden cardiac death, support those affected, support CRY’s screening programme and fund research and pathology.
