The OS Club is sad to share the news that Dr James William Alexander “Bill” Moxon (E 1943-1948), a lifelong, staunch supporter of the School, sadly passed away on Thursday 9th April 2020.
Moxon played in the school colts team in 1945 and the Evans House 2nd XV team for the 1946 House competition. He was also a member of the winning Evans cricket team for the House matches in 1947. In 1947 and 1948 Moxon was the secretary of the tennis club, and an under-officer in 1948. In 1948, Moxon played for Evans House in the House matches, and was awarded 2nd XV colours. He was a member of the Tennis VI and won the Senior Singles Ladder in 1948.
Please see below a message from his daughter, Helen:
Although maintaining his humour, Bill had been deteriorating with various ailments over the last few weeks. Although terribly saddened by not being able to receive visitors, especially from all the family, we don’t think the virus contributed in any way to his passing . He had a sudden collapse and this would have probably been the way he would have wanted.
He was a wonderful father to me, James and John, he was immensely proud of his 6 grandchildren and a loving and supportive husband to Betty. He touched so many people throughout his long life and made so many lovely friends. We will all miss him dearly.
Unfortunately due to the lockdown situation we are unable to hold a remembrance and thanksgiving service at this time. There will be a simple funeral attended by close family only, however we will let you know when we are in a position to organise a more fitting and proper “send off” and one that Dad would have wanted.
