In the twelve months between January 2018 and January 2019 we lost three of the Choristers from the consecration Choir of 1962 – Bob Carlton, Michael Newth and Duncan Gray. All three made their mark in the choir and at school, as indeed they did in their later lives: Bob, well known as a theatre director, and celebrated for his “Return To The Forbidden Planet”; Mike as an accomplished translator of early French; and Duncan as an exceptionally popular sports coach.
All three had the capacity to light up a room with their wit and sense of fun.
All three had much more to offer, and we have lost them far too soon, but they join a list which has already seen the premature losses of John Van Toren, Chas Greetham, Derek Hossle and Howard Milner.
