Those of you who met our wonderful and ever cheerful Warehouseman, Charlie Sellings, will be sad to hear that he died suddenly last week.
Charlie came to us to work part-time on making up fence orders, but over the years he so loved the job, the responsibility and his van that he voluntarily extended his hours until he was working for us full time. He kept the warehouse smart and well stocked without being asked. Ever cheerful, 100% reliable and just a lovely person to be around. We will miss him enormously, as will our many customers who had dealings with him.
He adored his family and, with his wife, spent Christmas every year with them in Australia. He lived for those two months – happily given by us as he worked so hard for the remainder of the year. Charlie was one of those rare breeds, a ‘doer’ and was forever finding odd jobs that needed doing, even the MD’s garden in the Summer.
Charlie’s unexpected death is a sad blow to our close-knit company. We will do our level best to maintain our hard-won reputation for prompt attention and delivery but please have patience if there is some short-term variance from our usual standards.
