A fine man. Always approachable he encouraged the best out of his staff who valued his professionalism, beyond knowing the rules and regulations to apply. If someone was given a task which challenged any proper discharge of it, he would always tell them to come back to give them guidance to surmount it. Very quiet and low-key. In short, he gave of his best so that those under him could attain the confidence and knowledge to do their best.
