Leigh Belcham OI (1951-1958) writes:
My brother, Jeremy Syer Belcham, died on 24th May 2020 in Cambridge, following a severe brain haemorrhage. For several years he had been suffering with dementia and moved into residential care last year.
Jeremy joined the Prep aged 9 in 1955 and left the Senior School in 1962 to undertake two years of study at Ipswich Civic College. During their school years, Jeremy and his two OI brothers, Leigh (1951-1958) and Michael (1953-1960), lived in Newbourne and sailed at Waldringfield. On leaving Civic College, he moved to Cambridge and joined the County Council Planning Dept. Working there for 40 years, he retired as an area planning officer with South Cambridgeshire DC in 2006.
Jeremy will be greatly missed by all who knew him but especially by his wife Yvonne, his daughters Jo and Claire and their families, and, of course, his two brothers and their families. A private funeral will take place on 16th June.
