IvanandCandy Jacklin(E63 & Staff 73-82) It is with great sadness that we record Ivan's sudden death in November 2003 from a heart attack. Ivan was the first Petrean member of staff, Housemaster of Grinham and producer of numerous very successful plays. He and Candy hosted numerous Petrean cricket matches and the Peterhouse First XI on their 1998 tour to England. They moved in 1983 to the D.S.G in Grahamstown where Ivan taught maths, chemistry and produced a school play. They then moved to England to Shiplake College, where Ivan taught until his death. He was at various times Head of the Chemistry Department, Housemaster of Everett House and Director of Activities. Candy has retired to their cottage in North Devon which Ivan loving described as " .... a sort of Peterhaven. It is well off the beaten track and we can indulge in the fantasy of living in a previous age".This email address is being protected from spambots.
