Dennis Parsons

We are deeply sorry to learn of the sudden death of Mr Dennis M Parsons at his home in Reading on 29 December 1981. Mr Parsons joined our company in 1972 as a junior chief engineer, being promoted to Chief Engineer a few months later. He proved to be an extremely able chief, whose outstanding work on the introduction into service of the Devon City and standing by the building and bringing into service of the highly automated Eastern City was highly regarded. Regretfully, we had to leave us on medical grounds in 1979, when it was hoped a less stressful life at home might bring him back to good health. His death at the young age of 45 was indeed sad news.
