CONDOLENCES have been offered by the Bailiff and Chief Minister following the death of the External Relations Minister’s husband.

In a statement issued to the States Assembly, Sir Timothy Le Cocq said it was ‘with deep sadness’ that he shared the news of the death of Kevin Rogers, the partner of Deputy Phillip Ozouf.

Sir Timothy said: ‘On behalf of the States Assembly, I would like to express my condolences to Philip at this incredibly difficult time.

‘Our thoughts are also with Mr Rogers’ family and close friends at this time, and we ask that their privacy is respected, as they come to terms with his sudden loss.’

Those sympathies were echoed by Deputy Ozouf’s ministerial colleague Chief Minister Kristina Moore.

Deputy Moore said: ‘Words cannot fully express the shock and deep sadness I feel for Deputy Ozouf at this time.

‘My thoughts and prayers are with Philip and all of Kevin’s family and friends.

‘My husband and I had got to know Kevin well and we will cherish our memories of him dearly.

‘He will be remembered as an incredibly kind man, a loving husband, and a devoted teacher.’

A statement from Alan Bird, the head of City of London School where Mr Rogers taught, said: ‘Kevin was a loyal and hugely respected teacher at the school through the last 16 years, inspiring in his pupils a love of Chemistry.

‘His commitment to the school was palpable to all who knew him, and his warmth and empathy were so greatly valued by pupils and staff alike.

‘We will all feel this loss most keenly. The thoughts of us all are with Philip, and with Kevin and Philip’s family and friends.’
