We are very sorry to announce the death of Christopher (Chris) Apps (Ha/Al. 1942-46) who died on Monday 5 March at the Royal Sussex County Hospital following a stroke, shortly before his 90th birthday.
Chris was a devoted Old Brightonian ever since leaving the College in 1948 to do his National Service in the Royal Artillery. He gave his time very generously to the Old Brightonians Association, serving both as Secretary and President. The welfare of both the Old Brightonians and the College was his concern for near on 70 years. A tangible legacy of Chris’ generosity can be seen in John Skelton’s statue of The Diver, which adorns the pond on the south lawn of the Chapel. For over 50 years Chris was an extremely loyal stalwart of the Old Brightonian Lodge, becoming both its Secretary and Master. The Old Brightonians extends its sincere condolences to Chris’ wife Betty and his family, which includes his son Richard (Ha. 1975-1980).
