In Memory

Horace Margetts

Horace Margetts is remembered for his commanding presence (he was usually the tallest in any group) and his calm, deliberative demeanour. Despite the incongruous blond hair, he was noted at school for his impressive Elvis Presley impersonations. He married Cynthia in 1970. Horace lived in Durban and died in May 2010.  He leaves a son, also named Horace.

I have vivid memories of being persuaded very much against my instincts to perform with Horace in our third form talent contest (organised by Mr McMillan, if you recall) while he entertained the audience with renditions of a few Elvis songs.  Quite what my part was is now a little foggy, though it was no doubt largely redundant, but I do remember being very impressed by Horace's expert miming of both the words and the gyrations.  He was certainly a character.
