Eric Abbey obituary

The Association was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Eric John Abbey after a short illness on 25 November 2012 in Colonia Court Nursing Home, Colchester.

A long serving secretary of PASMA and dedicated champion of mobile access towers, Eric was highly regarded throughout the industry for his knowledge and commitment to improving safety and standards in the access industry. During his lifetime and with his enthusiastic support, he saw the Association grow from very modest beginnings to become one of the leading and largest trade associations in the work at height sector.

Over the years, and even into semi-retirement, his contribution to the Association and its members was considerable, resulting in the presentation of a richly deserved award for outstanding service.

Funeral arrangements:

Date: Friday, 21st December 2012 at 12 noon
At: The Salvation Army Citadel, Butt Road, Colchester CO3 3DA
Followed by: A private (family) cremation at Colchester Crematorium

Family flowers only, but donations, if desired, to the Colchester Corps of the Salvation Army.

Eric will be sadly missed by everyone connected with the tower industry. Council, the secretariat and PASMA members all send their sincere condolences to his family.
