Phil Thomas

Monday 29 Jan 2018

OGs will be saddened to hear the news that Honorary OG Phil Thomas passed away on Wednesday 24 January. Phil came to Giggleswick in 1989 with his wife Jenny to teach Mathematics. He quickly became involved and integral to the outdoor pursuits programme, rugby refereeing and shooting. Members of the OG Lodge community will also remember his period of office as Master. His laconic yet shrewd views on life and the universe kept members of the common room enlightened and entertained until he retired in 2010. He will be sadly missed by all in the OG community, and our condolences go to Jenny and his daughters, Sally and Gemma. The funeral is at Buckie Crematorium on Wednesday 31 January at 12.30pm.
