Obituary - Michael Graham

It is with regret that we notify you of the death of Michael Graham (OI 1954-61)

GRAHAM, Michael. Passed January 2021

Michael was at the school from 1954-1961 and will be sadly missed by his friends and family.

We are conscious that many people from this time at school may not be in contact with us and we would be very grateful if you could pass on this information to those that you know.

As is the usual practice, we would like to place an obituary for him in the next OI Journal and would be very grateful if anyone felt they could come forward to write one. Alternatively, if you know of any stories or memories, please pass them on so we could put them together for the publication. Address any contributions to me through oldipswichians@ipswich.school or in the comments below.

With best wishes

Iain Chesterman
OI Chairman

 I was very shocked and saddened to hear the news of Michael's recent death. 

I actually knew him before he came to the school as we both lived in Henley where my father was the vicar and Michael's parents were farmers.  We went to Sunday School and sung in the church choir together and it was always a pleasure to go back over old times with him and his brother, John, when we met up at the OI Dinners.  I also remember being in his section at the CCF Camp in Comrie, Perthshire, in 1960.  I sat next to Michael at the OI Dinner in 2019 which turned out to be the last time that I saw him, where we enjoyed another very pleasant evening.
