Kersten Kloss - Nov 4, 1966 - June 2, 2017


It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Kersten Kloss on June 2, 2017. He will be greatly missed by his children Mitchell and Kristiana Kloss as well as family and friends. He is at peace now after a lengthy illness and will rest at his two favourite places: in the Ocean at St. Martin and at his childhood cottage at Lac-des-Seize-Iles, Quebec. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date and will be announced.

Jean Antonin Billard - 1930-2016

Old Sedberghians from the 1950s and friends who met Jean at recent Christmas parties will be saddened to hear of his death on October 30th, at the age of 86. He was our French teacher from 1955 to 1958.

Jim Godber - 1931-2015

James Horton Godber - known to us simply as Jim - graduated from Sedbergh in 1948, but he never really left the Valley. For all Jim's long life he was a caring friend of the school, sometimes critical, but always loyal and interested in whatever was going on in the "Bergh". He liked people and we liked him. Jim had things to tell us, ideas to suggest to us, thoughts to make us think, but he knew how to listen too. Kindness and generosity were his hallmarks. For the last twenty years of his life, Jim mentored me, giving good advice and guiding me through some very difficult rough seas when his own life was not smooth sailing at all. I shall miss him. For all of us who knew him, Jim was a great friend.
