News of Dennis Williams’s death on Wednesday 18th September 2013

After an heroic fight of some 2 years, our friend Dennis died at his home in London last Wednesday evening.

He had enjoyed an extended period of remission from Cancer also enduring major heart surgery at the end of last year.

We enjoyed Dennis and Renate attending our AGM last year and him attending our lunch in the Spring of this year ;  an event Dennis founded some 12 years ago, assembling Ottershaw Old Boys from the earlier years of the school

This year he achieved a flight to Hong Kong to spend a holiday with his son Mark and his family.

He also spent summer at his home in France where he was visited by his family who also kept closely in touch for happy occasions with him when at home in London. A number of Ottershaw Old Boys visited Dennis in London as well as many of his friends from past years.

A sterling supporter and past President of the Ottershaw School Old Boys Society , Dennis was a fine friend to so many of us. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

Letters should be sent to his wife Renate at :-

18 Crieff Road, London SW18 2EA
