Age: 71 years

On November 23, Mr. KARL ANTHONY Despott of Sliema, formerly of Balzan, aged 71, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loved ones, comforted by the rites of Holy Church after a short illness borne with Christian fortitude.Mr. Despott was an outstanding educator and a former Assistant Head of School at GCHSS. He leaves to mourn his irreparable loss, his treasured wife, Maphine née Xuereb, his beloved children, Edward and Maria, his sisters Jean and Tania, brother Maurice, his in-laws, nieces and nephews, other relatives and many friends. He will also be fondly remembered as a dedicated and well-loved educator, especially by his very many past students of Physics, his favourite subject. Mass præsente cadavere will be said on Saturday, December 1, at 2pm at Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish church, Balluta, followed by interment at Santa Marija Addolorata Cemetery. The family would prefer not to receive visitors at this time. Rather than flowers, donations to the Ursuline Crèche, Sliema, and Hospice Malta would be greatly appreciated. Lord, grant him eternal rest.
