Thursday July 11, 2019
It is with extreme regret and sadness to announce that, after a very short illness, John Hennessy, Board Director and Health & Safety Director, passed away yesterday afternoon (10th July 2019). His passing has truly shocked everyone at McGee and he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
His Father, Tom, worked for McGee for many years and John himself nearly 40 years, starting from yard labourer at McGee’s old yard in Alperton Lane and through his dedication to the company, working himself up to main Board Director and headed the Health and Safety Department for the best part of 25 years. And at one stage or another, all of John’s four children have worked for McGee.
John’s integrity was unquestioned. Everyone he dealt with respected his input and attitude to making sure all at McGee had a safe place of work to go to.
John has always been viewed as an extended part of the McGee family. He was a true gentleman and he will be sorely missed byall.
Our thoughts and prayers are now with his family.
