Sam Tooley (98-07F)

I had the privilege of being in Sam’s tutor group as well as sharing many lessons with him.

Sam was simply a joy to know. His kindness, warmth and incredible sense of humour meant he was great fun to be around. Tales of funny incidents and amazing parties usually involved Sam in some way!

In class his incisive and inquisitive intellect kept both teachers and fellow students on their toes whilst still being ‘one of the guys’. When he raised his hand to speak it could be a deep philosophical question or a hilarious observation – quite often both.

The shock at losing someone who was so full of life still hasn’t sunk in. I was greatly looking forward to seeing Sam at this summer’s reunion but will have to lift a glass in his honour instead. My heart goes out to his friends and family and the many lives that he touched in his all-too-brief time with us. Sam, you were a hell of a guy.
