John Neville

John Neville passed away on Saturday 23rd January 2021. He was 94.

John commenced his teaching career in the Autumn term of 1958 at the Oxford College of Technology, when it was still based on the Cowley Road. In the early 60's this moved up to Gipsy Lane and John continued his teaching when it became Oxford Polytechnic, becoming Principal Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, right through until his retirement in the Summer of 1991. John was an inspiration, teacher and mentor to many students.

For those who knew John, the family would like him to be remembered with joy. His love of food gave way to forming the Neville Dining Club with his late wife Kay. Many members of staff will remember this.
