Fergus Lyons KSG, Class of 1949

We were sad to hear of the death of Mr Fergus Lyons KSG (PPA 1949). Fergus was a former Chair of Governors, former President of the PPA and until his death, a Patron of the Trust. Fergus was instrumental in ‘saving’ the school when the Christian Brothers left over 40 years ago, and he helped establish the new foundation under which our Trust operates today.

Admitted February 1955, Fergus joined his brother Paddy at Lyons & Co, 16 Baldwin Street before coming a Partner in Lyons Davidson on formation in the 1970s where he practiced property and conveyancing.

Fergus was the first PR Officer for the Bristol Law Society in a time when the profession was not allowed to advertise or tout for business. He later became President in 1975.

He retired in the mid 1990s and was very much still enjoying his golf. As well as being a prominent Bristol solicitor and Catenian, Fergus was a loyal friend and supporter of the College and the Prior Park Association. His wisdom, wit and insight will be missed.

His funeral will be held on Friday 17th June 2022 at 11am in Clifton Cathedral.
