Mike Symons

It is with sadness we have been informed of the death of Michael (Mike) Symons on February 9th 2021.

Mike was at the School until 1969 and afterwards went to UMIST. Following University, Mike became a chemical engineer with ICI.

In 2000 he, and the family, moved to York where he started a sign-making business.

In 2017 he was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given 12 weeks to live. He soldiered on and it was only in the last month of his life that he became very ill and rapidly declined. He is survived by his wife, son, two daughters and four grandchildren.
