JACKSON, Berkeley Cunliffe

You are warmly invited to leave a message below, share your memories, and to celebrate the life of Berkeley Jackson, who we sadly lost in 2022.

The following obituary was written by Alan Jackson (JH 75-80)

Berkeley was born in Malaya in 1932 and later spent some time in Australia before attending Tonbridge. Following Tonbridge, he qualified as an Electrical Engineer at Faraday House and later became a ‘Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology’.

He married Ann in 1957 and they moved to Malaysia taking a ship around the Cape of Good Hope. Over the next 12 years he lived in several locations in Malaysia including Kuching in Sarawak along with a year near Perth, Australia.

In 1967, he moved to Ipoh, Malaysia to work for Perak Hydro as Chief Consumers Engineer, where he spent the next 20 years. Ipoh was therefore the main family home providing a wide variety of activities, one of the more unusual ones being jungle walks. Berkeley was a keen swimmer, badminton player and bridge player. He also created a family board game called Orbit.

Following his retirement in 1987, he and Ann spent much of the next 2 years travelling around Europe in their motorhome. Berkeley and Ann then settled in a lovely location in Menorca regularly visited by family.

Berkeley keenly followed the School’s progress over the years via the OT Society.

Much loved by his family: wife Ann, children Ruth, Alan (JH 75-80), Diane and grandchildren Khaz, Khiara and Kal.

(JH 45-49)
