Obituary

From the February 1998 issue of The Old Bostonian

Ken was at BGS from 1942 to 1947. He died in September last year.

After leaving school, he worked at Hardy and Collins in Boston High Street for several years, before moving to Lincoln.

On the day he died, Ken was taking part in the Spalding Open Day’ Golf Tournament. He had played 18 holes in the morning. Just after lunch, and prior to starting the afternoon round, he suffered a fatal heart attack.

His wife 'Butch', who was a nurse, had died some years before.
