It is with great sadness I have to report the passing of Keith Lake Wilson on 28th August 2022.

Keith was an Old Lyonian as well as a Vice President. Keith attended The John Lyon School from 1949 to 1953 and during his time at the School he was a keen golfer as well as being awarded the Prefect role and a member of The 49 Club. 

Keith remained very active after leaving the School and played for the Old Lyonian Football Association and enjoyed several tours with many friends.

Keith was also related to John Lake Wilson, who sadly died in January 2020 who also attend the School from 1945 – 1949 and went onto study Theology at Lincoln Theological College from 1974 – 1976. 

Our sincere condolences to both families.
