Jonathan Wright 1952-2017

We are very sorry to report the passing of Jonathan Wright on February 13th 2017.

Jonathan was a member of our Surbiton 4NCL team in the 2015-2016 season. He was also a regular at the British Championships and the Hastings Congress. Jonathan clearly loved his chess as, in recent years, he participated in a number of individual tournaments each year, including Gibraltar.

Your correspondent recalls teasing Jonathan along to our team curry evening after the Saturday games in the 4NCL at Telford. He was an amiable man and enjoyed the opportunity to socialize with his team mates.

The picture featured here is from the front of his funeral order of service which, we think, reflects how much chess meant in his life.

We would like to express our deepest sympathies to Jonathan's family and friends.
