John Hawkes

We report the death recently of Old Cryptian John Hawkes, a Past President of the Old Cryptians’ Club.  John was educated at Calton Road School like so many Cryptian alumni.  He commenced his life-long contact with the School in September 1928.  He was in West House.  John was an engineer who lived and worked mainly in the Midlands.  John was a modest and very likeable man and always a welcome presence at Club reunions.
