Richard Beaton - 1945-2013

Old Sedberghians will be very saddened to hear of the sudden death of Richard Beaton, a student at Sedbergh from 1959 to 1963.

The most gregarious of human beings, Richard loved life, music, literature and helping out wherever he could, He spent much of his life as a very successful and well loved "he had a voice like silk" CBC radio broadcaster in St. John's Newfoundland. He was always very interested in people and made everyone he met feel good about themselves. "A man of the world and a friend", "a sweet man" describes Richard well. One of his most wonderful qualities was that he loved to chat. There is a story that goes "He could talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you almost to the point of missing his news broadcast because he'd get so engaged in a conversation, and suddenly - whoops!, he would take off to the studio just in time to get the news on the air".

Robert (Bob) Stewart - 1934-2013

It is with great sadness that I must tell you of the sudden death of Bob Stewart, an Old Sedberghian and a loyal friend of the school. My own memories of Bob go back to 1950 when he was the Captain of the soccer team ( see photo #6 in the recent group of pictures on the Sedbergh website) and I was a brand new student at Sedbergh. He was a caring senior who always had time to listen to the fears and dilemmas of all of us, the little juniors. We looked to him for support and, in the rough and tumble days of those years, he never faltered to make us feel that we were important members of the school. For me, Bob has always represented the best of Sedbergh values - compassion, generosity, straight-forwardness and a positive attitude. He made a difference to me. He will be sorely missed by those of us who knew him. Our condolences go out to Nan, to Bob's entire family, and his many friends.

The following Obituary was published yesterday (November 16th) in the Toronto Globe and Mail.
