John Melsom (Hon OF)

Three decades of Old Framlinghamians will be saddened to learn that John Melsom (Hon OF) died on 11th December 2008 aged 92. John came to Framlingham in 1948 and retired 32 years later in 1980. He will be remembered for his coaching of the 1st XV for many years, holding the post of Housemaster to Kerrison for ten years, and supervising the Young Farmers Club. All this in addition to teaching biology and encouraging many an OF into a science based career. We extend our deepest sympathy to John’s son Richard (G 59-68) and his family.
