Greg Stiles


Greg was a quiet unassuming teenager with a dry sense of humour who was well liked amongst his peer group and a loyal friend to all who knew him. He attended Barley Hill Primary School, and then Lord Williams’s School in Thame from 2001 where he excelled in Art and Sport. At Lord Williams’s School we have an achievement award trophy in Greg’s name, which is presented each year to a deserving sixth form student. After completing his ‘A’ levels in 2008 he worked as a lifeguard at Thame Leisure Centre and then as an apprentice scaffolder for Connect Scaffolding in Thame. He was an avid motocross rider and was Vale of the White Horse Club champion in 2007. His many trophies still have pride of place in his room.

Greg was driving his girlfriend home one Sunday afternoon in May 2009 when he was involved in a road traffic accident on the Kingsey Road outside Thame. Greg was killed instantly and his girlfriend was air lifted to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford with multiple injuries. She is still recovering.

Greg is missed more everyday by his elder brother Mark, his mum Maggie and dad Rob and his many friends and family. He achieved more in his 18years than some people achieve in a lifetime and he has left a lasting impression on hundreds of people who feel proud to have known him and fortunate to have had him in their lives.
