Tim Bateman (OB 1973-1980)
It is with sadness that we report that Tim passed away on 13 October in hospital.
He had suffered from a Glioblastoma multiforme Grade 4 (brain tumour) for almost 3 years. Tim stayed positive throughout his illness, he was loved by everyone who came to care for him, the staff at UCLH and the carers in the nursing home he went to in mid-July.He inspired love and loyalty amongst his friends and colleagues at Redbridge Council, his comic collecting friends and his friends locally.
He was involved with supporting green initiatives in his community in Ilford including helping organise the Green Fair in Valentines Park and will be much missed by his friends and family.
With thanks to his sister Philippa Bateman (OB 1981-1983)
