Memories of

Henry Aylett

Henry was the best father, husband, son, brother, friend and teacher that anyone could wish for. For those of us lucky enough to have known him, his loss leaves a gaping hole that will never be filled. However, as we reminisce about his life in the years to come, we will all smile and laugh as we reflect on our fondest memories and share our favourite anecdotes.

We are incredibly fortunate that Henry will live on through Casper and Archie. The responsibility now rests on us to share our memories of him so they can understand what a fantastic and well-loved man their Dad was. 
 
With the input of everyone who loved him, this book tells the story of a special man who touched our lives so deeply.

His personality was greatly …

Sincere condolences to Mr Aylett’s family. I only knew him as a teacher who deeply cared about his students and when I heard about his passing it deeply saddened me. I was his student 12 yrs ago in class 4a at marshgate, and I thought I’d share 2 happy memories of him. One being …

Hi Casper and Archie, I had the great privilege of living with your dad, first in halls (where your dad, myself, Rob, Emma and Sally were part of the “E-Unit” – don’t ask, it has aged badly) and then for two years when we all lived a house together. We shared countless nights out …

All 3 of our boys were lucky enough to have Mr Aylett as their teacher at Marshgate and we are so grateful for that.  We can honestly say there was never a day they didn’t want to go to school when they had him.  He gave them such a love of maths that will …

Dear Casper and Archie, I absolutely loved working with your Dad at Marshgate Primary School. He enjoyed it so much that he left to work at another school and then came back to us! I have many fond memories of Henry, but a time that really stands out is when Henry, Shane and I …

Hi Casper and Archie, I was lucky enough to live with your Dad Henners, as we called him, whilst we were at University together in York. We were bundled together in E2 of Alcuin College (or ‘E unit’!) but a group of 5 of us (your Dad, Rob, Theo, Ems and myself) banded together …

    The first time I met Henry was when I went to York with some friends as part of a reunion. Kate was studying there and I met this very charming, erudite and thoughtful young man in a city centre pub. The conversation flowed; football, politics, the essentials of life. Henry seemed far …
