Robin Cracknell '54

Robin Cracknell, a roommate of mine all four years at Amherst and perhaps the Class of 1954’s only native of England, died on March 17, 2007.  Although in otherwise excellent health, he died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism in John Dempsey Hospital near his home in Simsbury, CT.

He is survived by his second wife, Sarah; two children, Andrew and Liesl, from his first marriage; four stepchildren; and eight grandchildren and step-grandchildren.
