In Memoriam: Wesley Brockington Sr.


Wesley Brockington, who passed away on May 30, 2010, was St. Albans’ most senior employee. Mr. Brockington started working in the STA kitchen in 1952. For almost sixty years he served as chef for all the boys, teachers and staff members who dined in the Refectory. He is remembered for his commitment, wisdom, and infectious sense of humor. He was nothing less than an institution within an institution. In 1999, in recognition of his unique record of service, Mr Brockington was named an honorary alumnus of the School. The 2000 Yearbook observed: “Forty nine years ago Wesley Brockington made his first meal for the faculty and students of St Albans school. Since then…he has been the early morning spark of this great St Albans flame, and he has been an inspiration to us all.” The STA community mourns an old friend. His wife Rose Irene Brockington died before him. He is survived by Ethel Mae Jordan and eleven children and step-children.
