Obituary: David Hopkinson

Old Boy John Dearing (1957-65) writes:

I have heard today that my contemporary, David Hopkinson who was at Bournemouth School from about 1958-65 has sadly died in Sligo, Ireland. David worked in technical publishing for over 20 years, aspiring at one point to being “Father of the Chapel” but took early retirement some 20 years ago, moving to Ireland in 1994. He was just over 70 at the time of his death.

One thought on “Obituary: David Hopkinson

  1. I was a colleague of David’s between 1981 and 1992, at Butterworths Publishers. He was a quiet, rather shy but very decent man who was utterly trustworthy and had a marvellously mischievous sense of humour to those who got to know him. I visited him a few times in Ireland, after he’d left Butterworths, and always enjoyed his company. He was a constant friend, and I am greatly saddened to hear of his premature passing.
