Gordon Boot 1920-2020

Some two months after celebrating Gordan’s 100th birthday we are saddened to bring you the news that he  passed away – on 10th August. His  family informed us that his health had declined over the last few weeks.

“He was in hospital just for his final three days for his pain to be managed and to keep him comfortable. His daughter Pam was by his side as he passed.”

“100 years and 2 months was such an incredible achievement and he had an amazing life, of which Scarborough College was such an important part of and a time he always talked about.  He was still talking about the gifts and cards sent from the College and OSA for his 100th birthday, up to the very end. He was so grateful for them.”

“He will be laid to rest on Tuesday 1st September, he will be wearing his Scarborough College tie.”

“Again, thank you for your kindness shown to Gordon and ourselves, in 2017 when we visited, and also more recently at his birthday. We will always cherish the memories you helped to create.”
