In Loving Memory of
Michael Duckworth, a colleague and friend to so many here at the School, passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. Michael loved his work and cared very much about the School. He will be deeply missed.
Michael, a painter in the Estates Department, had been with the School since 2012 and started as our only painter and decorator. He single-handedly painted most of our space during his first couple of years and taught us the benefits of in-house decorating, to the point that we hired him a colleague and partner. To do more for his team and the School, Michael also decided to diversify and qualified as a plumber during his time with us. He leaves a big hole to both the Estates Department and the School.
Michael had a truly kind spirit. He was friendly, with a chatty personality. There is not a single member of the Estates and Campus Services team that Michael did not know. He would often volunteer to run errands for his teammates, which endeared him to all. His teammates miss him greatly.
It is very hard to believe that Michael is no longer with us. His positive attitude and desire to be of service to others made him so special.
Michael leaves behind his young daughter Connie and step sons, Jimmy & Jay.
Our thoughts are with Eve, his partner and his family
