Ian Gavin-Brown (Lyon House 1955-60) died on 14 January 2018.  Ian had a longstanding connection with the School, first as a boy and later as a parent.  He acted as chairman and trustee of Sherborne in the Community for many years, providing opportunities for young people who had not had the same fortunate start to life.  He was also an enthusiastic participant in OS golf meetings.  His longstanding relationship with the school reflected the loyalty he showed throughout his life, including working at the same law firm for 55 years and long-term memberships of the HAC, MCC and Plaisterers.  Ian is survived by his wife Bridget, fellow OS and Sherborne Old Girls, Juliet, Nick and Stephanie and four grandchildren.
