We learned yesterday with great sadness that Geoff Stott died unexpectedly on the 10th August.
Geoff, or ‘Stotty’ as he was often styled, was a founding member of the energypeople team. After a long and successful career in the electricity industry, most of which was spent with Eastern Electricity at Harold Hill and then Cambridge, Geoff joined energypeople at our beginning in 2011. We will always be grateful to Geoff for his professional engineering expertise, dedication and loyalty to his colleagues. He has encouraged many younger engineers in their journey to chartered status and his professional guidance could be relied on. His warmth, friendship – and eccentricities – will be greatly missed but fondly remembered.
Some two weeks ago, when his illness took a turn for the worse, he wrote to several of us saying that he would soon be back and warned us not to write him off. Geoff will never be ‘written off’; he will always be in our thoughts.
