TEV has announced the death of Chris Pedley following a battle with cancer. He was 63.
Chris began his career in the late 1970s as a Technical Apprentice with Prestcold SHUD (Semi Hermetic Unit Division) at its Theale factory near Reading, Berkshire.
During a decade with Prestcold he rose through the ranks to become a customer-facing Technical Sales Engineer and also captained the company’s football and cricket teams.
He went on to work with companies including DAWMEC, Hubbard, Profroid, NRW and, most recently, refrigeration manufacturer EPCS, whose assets were acquired by TEV earlier this year.
TEV Managing Director John Dobson said: “We are very sad to announce the death of Chris Pedley. At TEV we only knew Chris for a short time but his help in transitioning EPCS to SC-Tec was invaluable.’’
Chris’s wife, Marie, is hoping to put together a book of stories and pictures for their children and would be very grateful to anyone who feels able to contribute with professional or funny stories, anecdotes, pictures, or any other memory of Chris. Marie would welcome these by email ([email protected]) or via the tribute page.
A funeral service will be held at West Wiltshire Crematorium on Tuesday 24 October at 12:30 pm. Full details can be found on the tribute page.
