Thank you for your warm condolences in this difficult time. Our Dad will be remembered as someone who excelled in his career and made a great difference to the automotive industry, starting as a trainee mechanic in a small garage in Nottingham, age 13. He made a difference to many people and has left a legacy larger than we could have ever anticipated.
We have nominated the charity 'Ben' for donations in lieu of flowers, and contributions would be much appreciated. Dad was a professional who's impact in his field will still be felt for years to come,, and this page will hopefully further Dad's impact and provide chances for young people to find a fulfilling and secure career.
Ben: Support For Life is an independent charity and dedicated partner to the automotive industry, and this cause is important to us because it supports people entering the profession Dad loved. The charity provide financial, social, mental and physical support during their careers and beyond, it gives chances to those from underprivileged backgrounds and supports them in ways that encompass all their needs. We know Dad would have been proud to support such a charity.
Thank you for your generosity and support, it is appreciated by us all.
Chloe, Ciaran and Lily O'Shea
