Dear Margot and family. We were so very sorry to read about Cec in the paper this morning. Although we did not see much of each other in the past few years, we will never forget the fun times we spent together in the 90tish. Cec favourite glass of wine, his workouts on the bike, the gettogethers at the house, it was always a good time.

We wish you Margot, Steve and Nadine and all the grandkids all the strength. Take good care of each other.

Love, Ilona and Bill

Margot and Family,
Our hearts are with you at this time of sadness.
Cec was a huge role model and an inspiration to many teachers having the honour to work with him and be lead by him in the 1980s at Barsby. Our ‘Barsby Gang’ had a key member of the group –> “Poz” !
The many fond memories of Cec will always be with us.
