Tributes have been paid to Wander ter Kuile, Group Technical Manager at Waterloo Air Products, who has died at the age of 57, two years after being diagnosed with cancer.
Wander was born in the Netherlands and moved to Britain aged 11. He joined Waterloo in 2006 after previously working for Vokes and Altair, using his extensive experience of air movement to developing Waterloo’s range of air terminal devices.
Wander served on many technical committees across the UK, Europe and America, and was widely respected throughout the industry. He was committed to developing future talent and was an engineering ambassador to Cove School, where he mentored young engineers.
Outside of work, Wander’s love of sailing led him to become a certified Yachtmaster, racing in Cowes Week, and he gained his wings as a glider pilot. He also loved working with wood, particularly enjoying the detail and challenge of making model sailing boats.
