In honour and memory of Julian Wilson

"I first met Julian when I was elected to the Parish Council in May 1999, he had already served 12 years by then most of those years as chairman. I quickly realised that this was an extremely intelligent man, a barrister, Company Secretary and someone who would read a set of accounts as light bedtime reading. Despite this he displayed great empathy with everyone always having time to explain or encourage even helping numpties like me through the complexities of local government finance. He was a champion of anything that provided services for the young and would push hard for finances to be provided for playgrounds and youth clubs. He was instrumental in getting Peace path opened to the public which provides another much needed access to Black Park.

Julian loved his music across a broad spectrum and was also an expert on the best vintages of wine. He loved his cricket and visited Lords as often as time allowed also football, he supported Tottenham Hotspur, Oh well each to their own. Sylvia and I also enjoyed several evenings at the Windsor Horse Show with Sue and Julian.

I had the pleasure of serving on the District council with him as well where he held the cabinet position in charge of the finances. Again always bringing his balanced and well informed knowledge of the subject to the fore

Julian above all else was a family man. He and Sue have three children, Adam, Lindsay & Amanda and seven grandchildren; Olivia ,Sophia,Tom, Charley, Grace, Rosie & Evie. He was so proud of them all.

Julian’s Illness deprived Iver of a great servant a man who never asked for personal recognition for his efforts but was happy to know that he was doing his best to provide the best services for the community.

I am proud to have been able to call him my friend and I, along with many others, will miss him greatly. He will always be remembered with fondness by all who knew him."

"I want to pay tribute to a wonderful chairman of Iver Parish Council. I was appointed as Clerk to the Council in April 1998. At the time Julian Wilson was chairman. He remained as chairman for the majority of the time until my retirement in October 2010.

He was a kind, caring and supportive chairman to me and to other members of staff. He valued staff training and encouraged everyone to avail themselves of opportunities to learn and advance within the local government environment. He was an excellent chairman at Council meetings: always fair and allowing both Members and the public to have their say whilst always ensuring that a decision was made in a timely fashion. He enjoyed the respect of all whom he came into contact. He was calm and thoughtful and he and Sue always brought flowers into the staff at Christmas, for which we were very grateful.

I will not forget his wonderful humour, quick wit and intelligence. He attended all meetings of the Council and its Committees cheerfully. He also spent time on site visits with me and with members of the public if necessary and was excellent at problem solving and making everybody feel valued.

He gave of his time generously to the benefit of the community which he served and his passing is a great loss. I know that he will always be remembered with fondness and respect by all who knew him.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time and I would like to thank them also for sharing him with the community of Iver."
