Maurice Lay Distributors mourn death of popular employee Rod Rose
Maurice Lay Distributors has paid tribute to Rod Rose, one of its longest standing employees, following his sudden death on 15th December 2016. Rod, aged 71, joined the company in February 1980 as transport manager.
During the 36 years Rod spent with the organisation, his duties varied and in 1995 he became an HGV Driver. Rod chose to work beyond retirement age and remained a key driver within the company until his death.
Rod was a popular and valued member of the team. Outside of work he was a keen gardener who loved to travel and recount tales from his numerous trips, to colleagues. Rod lost his wife Pam several years ago and is survived by his three daughters Caroline, Julie and Paula and two granddaughters.
Maurice Lay Distributors will be making a donation to the doctors' surgery where Rod and his family received tremendous care and support in his memory. Chairman Maurice Lay says:
"Rod was a much-loved member of the team who dedicated most of his career to Maurice Lay Distributors. He will be greatly missed by all his many friends and colleagues."
