In loving memory of Jolyon Brown, who passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday 11th August, 2020. Jols leaves behind his wife Kate, daughter Molly, mum and dad Lynne and Chester, sister Kirsty, brother in law Alan and niece and nephew Ellie and Alfie, as well as many other family members and those who were proud to call him their friend.

Jolyon was born in Doncaster on 6th October 1972 to Lynne and Chester Brown. He was educated at Hill House Prep School, Sedbergh School followed by Worksop College, where he was a proud member of Mountgarret (89 - 90). After finishing school he went on to further education at Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester and Caythorpe College in Lincolnshire. He joined his family’s farming business before travelling overseas for a chance to spend time working at a cotton farm in Australia. On his return to the UK he changed career and spent many years teaching and supporting others; firstly as a driving instructor for Arksey School of Motoring and in more recent years, in a role he loved, as a Learning Support Assistant at Rossington All Saints Academy. Throughout his career he was highly regarded by all those he met.

On 31st October 2015 he married his wife, Kate and together, on the 8th October 2017 they brought their beautiful daughter Molly into the world. Jolyon was a natural father and adored Molly above everything else.

Jolyon always had a passion for family and friends, many of whom were still close from his earliest days at school. He was a keen sportsman; both a talented swimmer and squash player throughout his school days, and an enthusiastic fisherman and supporter of Manchester United in later years.

All those who knew Jols will remember him for his loyalty, his caring personality, dry wit, mischievous streak and unwavering commitment to family and friends. He will be missed beyond comprehension by all.

A funeral service was held on Tuesday 1st September, 2020 at Barnby Moor Memorial Park and Crematorium.
