The IDE are saddened to hear of the death of a past member David Ross on Saturday 8th July.

Dave joined the IDE on 16th February 2006 and reached Full Membership status in July 2009. He was extremely proud to have achieved IDE status after working in our industry for over 50 years and he was one of the first “old school” demolition men persuaded to join the IDE when we opened our institute to a wider range of entry criteria.

Past President, John Woodward commented “Dave was an excellent site manager, a great machine driver and a true Yorkshire man, never happier than when on a cruise ship on some distant ocean with his beloved wife Jean or demolishing a complex structure in a tight area. He will be remembered for his friendliness to everyone and his ability to think a job through to get it down in the safest manner.”

The Funeral will be held at 3:00pm on Wednesday 26th July 2017 at Rotherham Crematorium, Ridgeway, East Herringthorpe, Rotherham S65 3NN

There will be Family flowers only. All donations to Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice in Dave’s memory. these can be sent direct or given to the funeral directors on the day.

Our thoughts go out to his wife and family at this sad time.
