Geoff Mike Gittins


It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Mike (AKA Geoff) Gittins on Monday 6th January aged 81. Sadly, Mike had been suffering from severe dementia for several months and was having mobility difficulties. He was admitted to Wythenshawe Hospital in early December with pneumonia and also with an infection in his bad knee.

He was at School from 1950 to 56.
Mike was a member of the Old Alts Committee for many years, and was Chairman from 2001 until he stood down in 2012 on the death of his wife.
He was a keen golfer and organised OAA golf events over a long period.
Mike also enjoyed cricket and after he stopped playing, he continued to be an officer of Hale Barns Cricket Club, rising to the position of President and Life Member.
In his younger days he was a very active footballer.

We send our condolences to Pat and his family.
