OP Graham Hurst RIP

16 Feb 2023
In Memoriam

Sad news has reached the Old Princethorpians, that OP Graham Hurst passed away on Thursday 19 January aged 58 years. 

His funeral took place at Canley Crematorium on Thursday 2 February. Graham's old friend Michael Joannides sent us this information.

Graham attended Princethorpe from 1976-1983 gaining 11 O levels and one A-level. He was on strong medication from his mid 20s and spent many years at Town Thorns Residential Home in Easenhall and latterly at Hawthorne House in Tile Hill Coventry. 

He was enthusiastically chatty on many topics particularly late 60s and 1970s chart songs and British classic cars. Many will remember him for his amazing recall of specific dates with local weather events being another favoured topic of conversation, particularly snow events.

Our sincere condolences go out to all Graham's family and friends.
