Richard Smith - 1937 - 2001

  • Comment

It is with great sadness that BDA announces the passing of Richard Smith, the association's principal technical officer, who died after a protracted illness on 9 October 2001.

Richard joined BDA in 1981 as senior technical officer, then became responsible for the professional services department in the late 1980s, finally becoming the association's principal technical officer in the mid 1990s.

In recent years Richard was instrumental in the development of European Standards for brick, paving and other masonry products within the CEN forum. He was a prime mover in Standards work and achieved considerable respect from colleagues both at home and abroad for his tireless efforts. At the time of his death he was chairman of CEN TC/125 for Masonry.

Richard's major contribution to the work of the association is gratefully acknowledged and he will be missed by colleagues throughout the industry. Our sympathies go to his widow Beryl and daughter Joanna.
