Memories of


Clive Johnson

Our long-standing colleague Clive Johnson sadly passed away on the 23rd of September in hospital after a short illness. 

Clive was well known to lots of staff having worked for the Royal Borough of Kingston for 23 years.

He was a highly respected and much-liked colleague involved in IT support over the years. He always went out of his way to be helpful and was tenacious in finding the best solutions to people’s problems. His dry humour always generated laughter.

He will be a massive loss to IT and the wider Council.

People can share their stories, thoughts and photos.  A book will then be created for his family to reflect on Clive’s working life at Kingston.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
