Former Island Bishop Succumbs to Cancer
Tributes have been pouring in following the death of Right Reverend Noel Jones, who was the Bishop of Sodor and Man between 1989 and 2003.
The 76 year old was admitted to St Chatherine’s
Hospice nine days previous as his condition worsened; he’d been suffering from
cancer of the bladder.
As the Island’s Bishop he was well known for his energy and how he would actively involve himself in all aspects of Island life.
There have as yet been no announcements of funeral or memorial service arrangements.
