Denis Thom (OH 1949-1957)
Denis died in June following a short unexpected illness. Born in Tredegar in1939, he followed his brother Barry to the school, particularly enjoying rowing and rugby. Denis qualified in Cardiff as a chartered accountant and worked as an auditor in London. Denis had pioneering brain surgery in his twenties that few knew about.

He later moved to Buckinghamshire and worked for Lovells, a local building company. He was a keen walker, taking much pleasure in walking a series of well-trained collies. A quiet man with great integrity, Denis kept the accounts of several local charities and was a Church Treasurer for four years. He acted as a Server in his village church, echoing his experience at school, and his funeral was attended by a large number of people who valued his friendship.

Denis sadly lost his brother and son some years ago, but he leaves behind his wife, daughter and two much loved grand-daughters.
