Grimley Evans (Sir John G.-E.) died suddenly on 26th March 2018, aged 81.

His distinguished medical career included epidemiology in Polynesia, New Zealand & London, followed by geriatrics in Newcastle.

Appointment as Oxford’s Prof. of Clinical Geratology in 1985 brought him and Corinne to Meadow Lane where they participated fully in local activities.

As well as family, Grimley enjoyed fly fishing, gardening, music and books.

Long after retirement in 2002, he contributed to medical journals & committees, tended his allotment, participated in local archaeology and helped to run Iffley’s Music and History Societies.

We offer deepest sympathies to Corinne, their two sons, a daughter & five grandchildren.
