We are very sad to announce that Daniel Joseph Rollins, who was at Princethorpe College from 1989 to 1994, passed away peacefully at home with his family on 13 April 2020. Daniel had battled Non Hodgkin Lymphoma for two years.
Daniel fought with bravery, courage and kept his sense of humour until the end.
Daniel loved to make people happy with a joke and laughter was a big part of his life. His passion, enthusiasm and positive outlook were infectious. They were constant throughout his life and even throughout his illness.
Daniel will be missed immensely by his family, friends and colleagues.
Alex Darkes, Daniel's former teacher, recalls him well.
"Daniel came to Princethorpe, following two or three years behind and in the footsteps of his brother Jacob (Jake). They came from a delightful family and knew how to behave, but had an enormous sense of fun and fair play; they were both very much true Princethorpians.
"Daniel still lived locally and I used to see him periodically at the pool in Leamington at the weekend when he took his youngster swimming. He visited Princethorpe two or three years ago at one of the Heritage Open Days and it was great to have a long chat with him and to show him around."
We offer our sincere condolences to Daniel's family and friends.
