Tribute to Foreman Duncan Darroch

Birkenhead based SeaKing Electrical has paid tribute to “true gentleman” and longstanding foreman at the firm Duncan Darroch who has died aged 42.

The father-of-two from Upton died tragically in June after suffering coronary artery failure.

He played a vital role at SeaKing managing teams of electrical engineers in projects spanning the globe in his 15 years at the firm.

SeaKing managing director Dave Gillam said Mr Darroch made an immense contribution to the business and the team’s thoughts are with his wife Lynn, and his two children Emily and Will.

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic news and we extend our most sincere condolences to Duncan’s family and close friends,” said Mr Gillam. “Duncan was a true gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with. He played a huge role in the business for many years. As a foreman he was responsible for supervising and managing teams on site ensuring operations ran smoothly. He travelled across the world for SeaKing on a broad variety of jobs and was professional and thorough with everything he did.

“I can speak on behalf of everyone at SeaKing by saying what an honour it was to have known Duncan as both a close friend and work colleague. He had a terrific sense of humour, he was a strong manager, a team player and always brought the best out of people. He never took a backward step and took on any challenge, recently completing the Tough Mudder endurance course to raise cash for charity. Duncan will be greatly missed but his memory will live on in the business.”
