Obituary: Owain Rogers

It is with much regret that the Old Sandbachians’ Association has learned, via Richard Ayres, that Old Sandbachian Owain Rogers has died at the age of 37.

He was a very enthusiastic Royal Navy cadet in the CCF in 1998-2002. His family moved back to South Wales where he was a sailing instructor before joining the Royal Navy. He was still serving at the time of his death.

Owain’s parents provided this photograph showing Owain receiving the H V Barnard trophy for achievement in the CCF RN Section.
H V Barnard was the Bursar in the Jon Francis era.
