Denis trained literally thousands of Bricklayers in his career teaching Bricklaying at Hereford Technical College (which became Herefordshire College of Technology and is now Herefordshire and Ludlow College). Those thousands of Bricklayers have gone onto many successful careers from starting their own businesses to, in at least one case, becoming a Deputy CEO of a College.

Yes, I was one of his students too, then a work colleague, then for a while his section leader but throughout all those career phases he remained my teacher, my mentor and most of all my very good friend. Like many many others I will miss him so very much but I’m so honoured to have been part of his life and he in mine, and to carry with me the values I learnt from him, those of honesty, integrity, a belief in others and optimism.

Thankyou Denis for your wisdom, inspiration, energy and most of all for just being you.
Always your student.
Kirk
