An Obituary:

John Nigel Sumner (1942 - 2014)

John Nigel Sumner, 71, Inverness, Fla., died suddenly Jan. 19, 2014, while cycling in Clermont. Nigel was born in Cheadle, Cheshire, England, Feb. 16, 1942, to the late John and Alice (Breeze) Sumner. He and his wife, Jill owned and operated their family hotel in Wales before moving to Inverness where they operated the Crown Hotel and Restaurant from 1990-2001. The "Crown Jewels" and beautiful stair case in the hotel lobby will always be remembered. Nigel was an avid traveler and with his wife, Jill, visited every state at least once in the continental United States. The R.V. was their "home". He thoroughly enjoyed cycling and spent many hours with his wife on bicycle trails around the country. A very gregarious gentleman, he never met a stranger and could speak with anyone at a moments notice.

Left to mourn his loss is his wife of 44 years, Jill (Robinson) Sumner; his two children, Simon J. Sumner and wife Erika of Orlando and Caroline J. Jenkins and husband Blake of Inverness; his sister-in-law, Joy Butterworth and her husband, Geoff of North Wales; two grandchildren, Sadie Sumner and Drew Jenkins.

Nigel's life will be celebrated at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, at the First Presbyterian Church of Inverness. Associate pastor, Denise Lay will officiate. In lieu of flowers, memorials are requested to First Presbyterian Church in Nigel's memory. Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home with Crematory is assisting the family. -
