Everybody at Wrexham Association Football Club extend our sincerest condolences to the family of Rhys Truss following his untimely passing at just 17 years old. Rhys was a Season Ticket holder along with his father Andy and comes from a family of Wrexham supporters.
Rhys was a very popular figure amongst supporters and will be missed by all who knew him.
His sister Emma paid loving tribute to a great brother;
“It’s difficult to find the words to describe Rhys. If you knew him then you knew how special he was. Rhys was the happiest, kindest young man you could ever meet. Everything he did, he did with a smile. No matter whom you were, whether he knew you by name or not, he would always greet every individual with a smile and a big hug. He was an inspirational ‘not so little’, little brother.
Wrexham football club was a massive part of his life. Our dad has been taking us since we were both young. Rhys has become a regular spectator the past few years both in the Mold Road stand and on various away day travels, including a recent weekend trip to Torquay for the FA Trophy semi-final game. One of his first games was the LDV trophy final in Cardiff. He has been to Wembley 3 times with Wrexham. One ended in elation and two ended in heartbreak but he still loved his experience supporting the team. Every game he cheered on his favourite team and his favourite player Wes York. He was often to be found leading the singing at the Racecourse and coming home with barely any voice after shouting for the full 90 minutes."
We hope that the messages of support from Wrexham Fans can give the Truss family some comfort at this most difficult time.
Nos da Rhys.
