We were saddened to learn recently of the death of Lewis Sevitt in Nov 2015. Lewis was a distinguished consultant physician in general and renal medicine in Hillingdon where he lived for many years.
Lewis was born in Dublin (his family originally came from Russia) and was the elder of two brothers. He attended Wesley in the 1950s where he excelled academically and became Head Boy, the first Jewish head boy in the school. He was very much involved with the drama productions of the school.
He went on to study medicine at Trinity where he continued to show his academic ability by winning every prize and medal every year and in 1960 was made a scholar (Lewis’ award was the first scholarship awarded for medicine)
His full obituary can be read here: munksroll.rcplondon.ac.uk/Biography/Details/7187

My sympathies go to his family and his contemporaries too! It is great that he was the first Jewish head boy in Wesley College!

Did not know that Lewis had passed away , we used to play together as children with Harvey and my late brother Eric Cohen , we also lived in lovely Bushy Park Road , happy memories of our youth .

Lewis and Harvey lived across from my grandparents in Bushy Park Road. What a distinguished career he had. A very brilliant man

A wonderful tribute

Such a lovely tribute to a lovely man

Thank you for sharing.

Mum (Joy) have you seen this? And Carol-Ann?x

I have read it cause Rosemarie wrote it and sent me a copy

Ruth, mum (Patricia)

Ann I think this should be put on Shalom Ireland.

Fascinating video featuring former pupil Stephen McCabe ! We wish you all the best with McCabe's Coffee

Bunzl Irish Merchants Coffee Shop
When Clive McCabe bought a small coffee roaster and stuck it in his garage in 1997, he became one of Ireland's first micro coffee roasters, and started a business at a time that Ireland was really only waking up to coffee. We talk with his son Stephen, manager and master coffee roaster, about the set up in Wicklow, from where they supply coffee to cafe owners across the island.

Fantastic! Didn't know this coffee business was a school mate and based in Wicklow!😃

Maith an fear agus go n-éirí an bóthar libh freisin! I am delighted that a Wesleyan has started such a successful coffee business and made such a great job of it too!
