Dr Howard Evans

Colleagues will be sorry to learn of the death, on 18 March 2012, of Dr Howard Evans, former Senior Lecturer in the Department of French.

Dr Evans joined the University as Lecturer in 1966, being promoted to Senior Lecturer in 1974.  He was Dean of the Faculty of Arts between 1987 and 1989.  From October 1989 he was seconded on a 50% basis as Joint Director of the Foreign Language Teaching Unit, a role in which he continued until his retirement in 1996.

A Requiem Mass will be celebrated at The Holy Name Catholic Church, Otley Old Road, Leeds 16, on Friday 30 March at 11.15am prior to cremation at Lawnswood Crematorium.  Family flowers only please donations: donations to St Gemma's Hospice would be gratefully received.

As a mark of the University's esteem, the flag on the Parkinson Building will be flown at half-mast on the day of the funeral.

An obituary is being prepared.
