It is with great sadness that Plaid Cymru Gwynedd Councillors extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Councillor Charles Wyn Jones of Llanrug, Gwynedd. Following an illness, the Councillor passed away at hospital on Thursday, 5 of November.
Plaid Cymru Gwynedd Group Leader, Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn, said: “It has been a great privilege to work with Charles over the years, and we, as colleagues and friends, extend our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and the community of Llanrug in their loss.
“Charles had a passion for Wales, the Welsh language and his area. He was a Llanrug Community Councillor for many years, a Councillor on Arfon Borough Council before becoming a Gwynedd County Councillor in 1995. Charles was a true gentleman, he was wise, supportive of others and very thorough in his work.
“He spent many years representing Gwynedd on the Police Authority and then on the North Wales Police and Crime panel. He leaves a gaping hole in our midst, but we will cherish the memories,” said Councillor Dyfrig Siencyn.

He was a true friend to Arfon constituency and worked actively in his locality. We feel for his family and friends during this sad time and are grateful to know and work with Charles.”
