The Old Haileyburians Association is always saddened when we hear of the passing of members. We choose to celebrate their lives through our In Loving Memory articles. We encourage the Haileybury community to take a moment to read through the articles and share in the celebration of life.
In recent months, we are saddened by the passing of the following Old Haileyburians:
Cameron Dale (OH 2009) Cameron sadly passed away peacefully on August 30 at the Gold Coast University Hospital after a sudden illness. Cameron’s partner, Jessica Watson, and his parents Sue, Mark (OH ’73) and sister Alison (OH 2011) were all by his side. Cam was a vibrant young man with a passion for sailing and according to sister Alison he was “a young man who brought joy to so many, always making time for his family and friends.” Our thoughts are with Jessica, the Dale family as well as Cameron’s cousin, Sam Christie-Sherrill (a Year 12 student at our City campus) during this incredibly difficult time.
Graham Drake (OH ’67)
Malcolm Evans (OH ’55)
Bruce Healey (OH’ 65)
Ben Langford-Jones (OH ’95) Ben sadly passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest at work. Ben was a much-loved member of our community, a man of great humour, warmth and spirit who brightened the lives of those around him. Ben was Old Haileybury Football Club Under 19s runner and was an adored mentor to these players. The love these players had for Ben was unprecedented, and in tough times he was a rock for many of them struggling with the issues COVID has dished up, regularly checking in on them with calls and texts which was greatly appreciated and needed. Our thoughts are with the entire Langford-Jones family and Ben’s huge array of friends during this incredibly difficult time.
Peter Quennell (OH ’66)
Geoffrey Walker (OH ’54)
Bob Whiteway (OH ’50)
