It is with immense sadness, that we must announce that Cllr Stephen Dehnel died very suddenly, but peacefully, on Friday 24th May.
Stephen had only recently been re-elected as an Ashford Borough Councillor on 2nd May. He was a much loved colleague and friend to many and he will be missed greatly.
Stephen was always a picture of health, his death has come as a complete shock to everyone who knew him. Stephen was liked and admired by all who knew him.
Stephen had a distinguished Military career, before retiring and dedicating his life to his family and public service. He leaves a widow, grown up children and grandchildren. Our thoughts are with his family and many friends.
