Obituary - Chris Knock (OI 1968-75)

We are sad to announce the passing of Chris Knock (OI 1968-75) on 10th January 2024.

Chris will be missed by his family and friends.

We are conscious that some people from the time when Chris was at the School may not be in contact with us and we would ask 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 Chris in the 2023-24 OI Journal and would be very grateful for any stories or memories you may wish to share which we could put together for the publication. Please address any contributions to me through oldipswichians@ipswich.school
