Don Filleul OBE has died

Former politician and Chairman of Jersey Heritage Don Filleul OBE has died.

He passed away peacefully while being cared for at Jersey Hospice this morning.

A friend has paid tribute to the proud Jerseyman saying the island owes him a huge debt.

I'll remember him as a very close friend, a very close supporter of mine politically for which I will always be grateful. But as a determined and totally dedicated politician. Jersey owes Don Filleul a huge amount, not least because Queen's Valley reservoir is thanks to him.

– Frank Walker, friend and former Chief Minister
