Michael Bostelmann (A 61-66): A True Friend to Bradfield


OB Running

We were very sorry to learn the sad news of the passing of Michael Bostelmann (A 61-66) on 8 February 2024. Michael was a true friend of Bradfield, a keen cross-country runner, squash player and supporter of the College.

During his time at Bradfield Michael was Head of Loyd House, a talented athlete and winner of the coveted Senior Cheese in 1964, following his brother Robert who had won it in 1962. Michael maintained his relationship with the College after leaving; first as Secretary, then as President of the OB Running Club, serving for around 20 years before handing over stewardship to Tony Henderson (A 61-66) in 2011 as well as working with the current Secretary Adam Robinson (G 11-16).

He was a great advocate of Bradfield, believing that the supportive, all-round education that he received enabled him to thrive and chose to share his thoughts on Bradfield and philanthropy in ‘The Gift of Giving’ in 2021. Everyone who met Michael was a fan; he will be greatly missed by the Bradfield community.
