Plymouth City Council is saddened to hear of the passing of Alderman Tom Jones.
Tom Jones was elected to Plymouth City Council in 1973 for the Whitleigh Ward and in 1976 for the Estover Ward. He served this community until 1995 before he was made an Alderman of July that year.
Throughout his time working with the Council, he chaired and served many committees with great dedication and commitment, working hard for the communities he cared about.
Councillor Sue Dann, Lord Mayor of Plymouth, said: “Tom was a prominent Conservative councillor. He had a real interest in housing and represented his residents with vigour. Our thoughts are with those that loved and knew him at this difficult time.”
The funeral service will be held on Tuesday 8 November at St Andrews Church, Plymouth at 1pm.
The service will be followed by refreshments at 2pm to 3pm at the Council House, Armada Way.
