We have been advised by Kenneth's wife, Eleanor, that he died on 24th July, 2017, aged 84.

An article from the Birkonian in July 1952 on his appointment as Head of School reads:

"Born in 1932, and entering the School in 1943, Rimmer soon made himself prominent in work and games.

He was made a School Prefect in 1950 and became Head of School in 1952. He passed the S.C. in 1949, G.C.E. at the Advanced level in 1951, and plans to proceed to Cambridge to read Modern Languages. First Rugby XV 1948-1951, captain 1950-51 and Captain of Cheshire Schoolboy XV 1951;First Hockey XI 1951-52; Captain of Athletics 1951-52; Under-Officer in the C.C.F.; Senior Librarian and a member of the Dramatic Society.

His quiet, determined leadership has been based on example and service; and his keeness and enthusiasm in all School activities have been as great an inspiration to others as his prowess in athletics and games"

On leaving School Kenneth went to Trinity Hall Cambridge.

Kenneth taught German and French at Haileybury and was Housemaster of Hailey House [1969-1982]. His funeral took place in Haileybury Chapel on 30th August, 2017.
