Oxford University Athletic Club

In memoriam: Rex van Rossum (OUAC President 1959)

The club is saddened to report the death of Rex van Rossum (OUAC President 1959), who passed away peacefully on Christmas Day 2016. Athletics was always a sport that was close to his heart, and his family report that he continued to talk fondly of his time at Oxford and the events of his Varsity Match days.

If anyone has any reminiscences, photographs or newspaper clippings from the time, or is in contact with any of Rex’s contemporaries, please do contact the club. A funeral is being planned for mid-way through this month, and an invitation has been extended to any and all who would like to attend.

Those wishing to contact Rex’s family should email athletics.club@studentclubs.ox.ac.uk in the first instance.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends at this time.
