Professor Robin Touquet

Professor Robin Touquet
1947 to 2021

               

 

The Conservators and staff of Winbledon and Putney Commons were saddened to learn of the passing of Profesor Robin Touquet on Friday 16 July 2021.

Robin served as an elected Conservator from 2012 to 2015 and provided a unique and valuable perspective to the Board, in part due to his professional training in medicine. Even after his term of office ended, he remained very committed to the Commons and was a regular on many of our walks and events and was a great defender of the Commons wildlife, and he particularly enjoyed our nature walks. 

Robin and his wife Liz were also amongst the first to join the Friends in September 2019.

Robin will be remembered not only for his brilliant mind but also for his charm and wonderful sense of humour, a combination that clearly took him a very long way in life.

Out thoughts are very much with his wife Liz, and his children, Henrietta and William.
