He worked hard within the industry and was a past President of the British Refrigeration Association and past Chairman of the Refrigeration Industry Board. He also worked on the Environmental and Energy Committee.
Richard was a real gentleman who was well known and liked within our industry. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
