Graham Noel Powell
My husband Graham Noel Powell passed away suddenly last year, 18th February 2014, age 64 years.

He attended Prescot Grammar School from 1961 until 1966 and had very fond memories of his time there.  After leaving, he studied Art in St Helens and when he was eighteen he moved to Nottingham where he attended the Nottingham Art College for three years.  It was during this time  that we met and subsequently married in 1974. 

Graham was a Ceramics teacher for a few years and did sell some of his own work at Liberty's in London but as very often happens he chose a different route to go down which was to become a very successful Licensee of a Public House in Nottinghamshire. We spent fifteen years running the pub and then started a catering business which we had until Graham passed away last year.

Up until twenty years ago we often used to go back to Eccleston to see Graham's parents who lived on Church Lane but after his father died and his mother moved to Nottingham to be near us we have only managed to go back once which was very nostalgic for Graham.

He always kept in contact with Malcolm Herbert and on his last visit to Eccleston he met up with Barry Lowe who he hadn't seen for approximately thirty five years.

I just thought that I would send this to you as it may be of interest to anyone who knew Graham!

Doug Bridson, "Graham was a friend of mine throughout the 60,s and we sang together in the choir.I have very fond memories of him and the times we spent together in Eccleston,I lost my wife at 62 and its far too young ………………my thoughts are with Helen".

Helen Powell, "When ever Graham spoke of his school days Doug, your name often got mentioned. He had very fond memories of Prescot Grammar and the antics that you all use to get up to! Graham passed away very suddenly and like your wife it was far too soon. Our first grandchild, Max Graham, was born nine months after Graham died so he never knew that he was to become a Grandad but it has been a tremendous help to us".
