Longtime Southborough resident Dick Upjohn, who passed away last week at the age of 82, had a passion for history, particularly ancient history. He had a passion for the outdoors and a for conservation. He also had a passion for plaid.
In a fitting tribute to the former Fay School educator, Fay declared yesterday Plaid Day. Students and faculty alike came dressed in their best plaid fashions.
“After the sadness of losing an integral member of our community, Plaid Day enabled the Fay School community to reminisce with joy and laughter – a fitting way to celebrate our beloved Mr. Upjohn,” Fay wrote on their website.
You can see pictures of Plaid Day on the school’s website, but I’ve included a few here for your enjoyment. The last photo in the gallery is Mr. Upjohn himself in his famous plaid. (Click an image in the gallery to enlarge.)
