THE fam­ily of a young teacher and promis­ing crick­eter who died after emer­gency surgery on a brain tu­mour have named two char­i­ties for peo­ple to do­nate to in his mem­ory.

Jeremy Suter, 23, was in Hud­der­s­field for a fam­ily gath­er­ing when he was ad­mit­ted to hos­pi­tal on Fri­day last week.

A brain scan re­vealed a tu­mour and he was rushed to A&E for surgery but the brain swelling was al­ready too great.

His par­ents, Hugh and Margot Suter, have asked peo­ple to do­nate to Food for the Hun­gry, a Christian de­vel­op­ment agency, and Buck­ing­hamshire Youth Cricket Trust.

Mr Suter was a wick­et­keeper for Bea­cons­field Cricket Club, and had pro­gressed from their colts into the first XI.

Club chair­man Phil Geach said: “Jeremy was quite sim­ply a won­der­ful hu­man be­ing and the world is di­min­ished by his de­par­ture from it. The club will miss him im­mea­sur­ably.”

Mr Suter taught ge­og­ra­phy at Dr Chal­loner’s Gram­mar School, where he had also been a pupil.

Head­teacher Dr Mark Fen­ton said: “I have ab­so­lutely no doubt that Jeremy would have gone on to have a great ca­reer as a teacher, had it not been so trag­i­cally cut short.”

The school has set up a trib­ute book for staff and stu­dents, and as­sem­blies were held to break the news.

Parish­ioners at St Mary and All Saints Church, in Wind­sor End, Bea­cons­field, also re­mem­bered Mr Suter on Sun­day. He had been an al­tar server as a child and his par­ents still at­tend the church.

The Rev­erend Dr Jeremy Brooks said: “He was al­ways ready to lend a hand with what­ever was go­ing on, and happy to talk to peo­ple of all ages. He served as a young­ster as an al­tar server and again would hap­pily help out there when­ever needed.

“I have had a num­ber of mes­sages from older mem­bers of the con­gre­ga­tion for whom see­ing the whole Suter fam­ily sit­ting in a row in church bright­ened their whole day.”

Mr Suter’s fu­neral will be held at St Mary’s on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 24, at noon.

Do­na­tions can be made care of Arnolds Fu­neral Direc­tors, in Gre­gories Road, Bea­cons­field.
