  • Hello Frances:
    Your dad was a first class gas fitter when I was a fitter apprentice at Canvey branch of The North Thames Gas Board, and I was often teamed with him. His tool bag was always immaculately clean and the tools well cared for!!
    I learned a lot about the gas fitting from Denis and used a lot of that knowledge when I continued in other areas of the gas industry here in Canada, your dad was a classy man.
