Thu 24 Jun 2021 - Farewell Eric Woodhouse BT Manchester Staff

Farewell Eric Woodhouse

Hi From BT MR Staff,
Eric Woodhouse 2.jpg
Bernard Naylor got in touch with Mike Ku regarding the belated sad death of Eric.

I was contacted by Bernard Naylor last week to advise that Eric had passed away in October 2020. He was 88 years old and had just celebrated his Birthday. He had been suffering from Dementia for a number of years. Some of his colleagues has been trying to enquire about his health but had been discouraged as it was thought it was causing him some distress. As a consequence many of his BT Colleagues will be unaware.

Bernie Rowlands knew Eric for many years. He started his career in Liverpool where he was a TO on Transmission Works Orders at Liverpool D Repeater Station. He was a very well liked person and was good at his job. He eventually got promotion to the Regional Service Division on Transmission Duties where he worked until retirement. He was a very likeable person who loved his work and was a BT person through and through. He kept in touch with many of his colleagues after retirement and held an annual BBQ for them. He will be remembered with affection by all and surely missed.

It's sad that Eric's death has only just come to light. This goes out to all who knew him and worked with him during his time at BT and to let his friends know that he is no longer with us.
