15 years at Caterpillar and 10 years at the Phoenix unit working together you became a dear friend. I will miss you and your strong opinions and fantastic humour. My thoughts are with Mary and your family at this sad time.

  • My dad absolutely loved his time at caterpillar, but he found a new passion when he started at the Phoenix unit, used to love his Wednesdays helping out x

Rip Des, you’ve left behind a very close family to be proud of who will be a great comfort to each other at this sad time. Fond memories of the driving lessons you gave me when I first came over from Ireland (passed 1st time!! so thank you) Thinking of you all and heartbroken for your loss. Sheila Bill and family xxx
