Rev Dr Norman Francis

We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Rev Dr Norman Francis on Sunday 13th September.

Norman was lecturer and warden at the United Theological College of the West Indies (in Jamaica). He did both his Masters and PhD with us, working on the motif of the Temple in Matthew's Gospel under the supervision of Professor Helen Bond. 

He passed his PhD only a few months ago and had hoped to graduate in person whenever that was possible again. We remember him as a lovely, gentle soul, with unfailing good humour and an infectious laugh. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Karen and two grown up sons at this sad time.
