Hilton College is deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden passing of Tony Richter in a car accident last night, along with his daughter Alice. In his 21 years at Hilton, Tony served as Life Sciences HOD, coach of the 1st XV, coach of the 1st XI, Lucas Housemaster, Ellis Housemaster, and most recently Director of Operations.
