LOWE, Stephen. Passed 24th October 2020
Stephen was at the school from 1960-1967 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments below.
With best wishes

Stephen Lowe sadly passed away, with his wife at his side, on 24th October 2020 following a long and courageous fight against the most cruel disease of Motor Neurone Disease, with which he had been diagnosed in 2016.
We were fellow OIs, at both Junior House and Westwood together. Throughout his illness, Stephen had maintained his dignity and above all his sense of humour. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Westwood reunion in 2007, when he did not seem to have changed at all over the intervening 40 years since he left the school.
