Colin Luke, talented sportsman and a popular school captain, died on Grand Cayman Islands in December shortly before his 76th birthday.


Colin left the College in the late 1950s and completed his National Service in Kenya as an officer in the King’s African Rifles. In Kenya he met his future wife, Lesley Anne Scurr, who joined him in London following his demobilisation. At their subsequent wedding, Tony Amura was his best man and Vladimir Felzmann, Phil Leeder and John Bunce were his ushers. He started work at Costains and lived in Dolphin Square before joining the financial sector and setting up home in South London.

In the early sixties, Colin swapped London for the Grand Cayman, where he lived for nearly 50 years becoming a respected member of the expatriate community.

Lesley died in 2006. Colin is survived by two children: Kirsten and Mathew.

A Memorial Mass to celebrate his life and pray for the repose of his soul will be held in the College Chapel at 12:30 pm on Sunday, 8th February. Entrance via Malwood Road.
