FORMER school bursar Martin O'Sullivan was remembered today when a tree was planted in his memory.
Staff, pupils, and other friends from St Joseph's College gathered for a short ceremony in the school grounds.
Mr O'Sullivan, from Parham, near Framlingham, died in April last year when a container lorry toppled over on top of his car at the Dockspur roundabout, near Felixstowe.
He had recently retired as deputy bursar of St Joseph's College, and had been bursar of the School of Jesus and Mary before the two organisations merged.
"He was very popular at the school and had many friends here," said deputy headteacher Tony Newman.
"Martin played a crucial role in the merger of the two schools and his death came as a tremendous shock to everyone connected with the school."
