Howard Limon (FS 42-46) died in March this year. His brother Donald has sent in the following:

“Howard Limon (1928-2010) enjoyed his time at St Bees, where he was especially friendly with Alec McCaig and Arnold Bloomer. He subsequently moved on to Queen’s College, Oxford, where he read History. After graduating, he immediately began a successful career as a preparatory school master. His first post was at Mostyn House School on the Wirral, from where he moved on to Victoria College, Jersey to fill a new post as head of the Junior School. In 1968 he returned to the mainland as headmaster of Boundary Oak School, Fareham. Finally he taught on a part-time basis at St. Aubyn’s School, Rottingdean, before retiring to Brighton and later moving on to Somerset. He was regarded by all who knew him as a round peg in a round hole, being greatly loved by boys, staff and parents at each of the establishments in which he found himself. His secret was that he instinctively knew how boys’ brains worked. In his spare time he was a keen dry fly fisherman, a skill he learned whilst at St. Bees. He was married in 1970 to Betty Williamson.”
