John Widdowson RIP

We have just received the sad news of the death of John Widdowson who taught at Westgate from September 1978 until July 1991.

This is a message from his son Geoffrey to the Old Augustinians

“Dear All

My beloved father and former teacher at the Abbey and St. Augustine’s John G.H. Widdowson passed away last week aged 83. He left us peacefully at his home in the Highlands on 7th January 2020. He loved his time spent teaching at the College and spoke often and fondly about it as well as the many people he taught and became friends with while there.

The funeral service took place on 18th January at 10.00 am in the Greenock Crematorium just outside Glasgow. Should anyone feel the need to pay tribute, do so by doing something kind locally such as planting a tree or donating to a worthy cause in his memory.

Tempus Fugit


We send our deepest condolences to Geoffrey and his family and we keep them all in our thoughts and prayers.
