Sean Welsh

5 December 1971 - 23 June 2018

It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that I write to advise of the passing away of one of our own. We lost Sean Welsh on Saturday morning, losing his short 6 month battle with Cancer. He passed away at 8am with his Mum and Sister by his side.

Sean and I have worked together for 14 years. He has been involved in some way on nearly every project I have touched since we first met. I am not sure if his appointments were down to his problem solving ability as a forward, out of the box thinking electrician or the fact that he frequently made me fall to the floor in laughter with his easy-going personality. He had the ability to command attention, solve a complex problem, and then leave us all in stitches. He always led by example, kept his team very close to him and welcomed new members to the team with open arms and a big smile. If you were lucky you may have even caught him impersonating you on occasion, or throwing shapes, doing one of his dances from his vast repertoire, even if he had to provide the backing soundtrack himself. Sean was a stand-up guy in more ways than you could imagine, and I always knew that he had my back. You will be sadly missed my friend – Rest in Peace.

"We are heartbroken to hear of Sean’s passing. It all happened so suddenly and he was always so cheerful and upbeat that one could almost forget he was ill. We have always been so grateful for how amenable and kind he always was and we send our deepest condolences to his family through this very sad time.

Please let us know where to send flowers. With deepest sympathies and love."

I am both shocked and very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of Sean at such a young age.
Sean was truly a gifted electrician, always pro active and i am fortunate to have met and worked with Sean on the Cottesmore Gardens project.
My sincere condolences goes out to his family.
Kind regards, Serge

My thoughts are with his family and everyone at Cheevers Howard.
Life is but a vapour - This is a harsh reminder that we have to live to the fullest each day.
Kind regards, Hein

I learned about Sean’s passing on Facebook yesterday. Absolutely gutted and still saddened when thinking about him. What a lost. He was a very good man and a great colleague.
Kind Regards, Piew

I know from conversations that we have had in the past how much you thought of Sean! Such nice words!
I'd kept it together until I read your email.
Best wishes, Paul

I am incredibly sorry to hear this I know Sean was a great part of the team and in the short time we worked with him he most certainly embodied all of the traits you listed. Thoughts with you and his family during this difficult time. If we have anyone on site Thursday we will most certainly take in a minute in his honour.
Condolences, Patrick

I am so shocked, it feels like I saw him just yesterday.
Regards, James

Still can’t believe it. I always looked forward to seeing Sean and spent many hours in cupboards with him planning those installs. A truly fabulous guy and a gentleman. I can’t imagine how you and his family are feeling.
With best wishes, Ian

Sincerest condolence to Sean’s family and colleagues.
Best wishes. Regards, Steven

I’m so sorry to hear this and I had no idea! Thank you for letting me know.
Such a lovely man who I’m sure will be sadly missed by his colleagues, friends and family. I guess you’ve got some big boots to fill with Sean gone so all the best with that one!
Kind Regards, Luke

Such terrible news to hear. Sean was a real joy to work with even during the ‘crunch time’ of a project! A hard working and entertaining person to be around, he will be truly missed! I wish his family the very best of wishes and comforts.
Kind Regards, Liam

Really sorry to hear about Sean’s passing and my thoughts very much with his family and friends at this difficult time.
Best wishes, Adrian

I am very upset to have lost such a good friend, as I am sure you are, I cannot help but smile whenever I think about the guy, which is exactly how he would have wanted things to be...

We were sorry to hear of Sean’s passing. Sean was a good friend and a pleasure to work with. He will be sadly missed. Please pass our condolences to his family.
Sincerely, Ted

I didn’t really know Sean to be honest & only met him a few times but when I did work with him I always ended up in fits of laughter, no matter how stressful work was he always seemed to be laughing. It was a shock to find out he was ill & even more to find out he’d lost his battle especially at such a young age, makes you realise how precious life is.

Dear Sean, You are the only person I’ve ever known who could be incredibly rude to me, yet leave me feeling grateful and wanting more! You are a legend and a true professional and I will miss you immensely.
I can’t believe we lost you so soon and whilst you still had so many hilarious insults to bestow upon me.
If we all had the same positive impact that you did on the people around us, the world would be a much better place.
I wish you an excellent journey to a better place where there is no such thing as drawing revisions and no “box makers” drilling through cables. Thank you for the joy, laughter and fond memories.

Sorry to hear of sad loss of Sean he will be hugely missed. Sean always went out of his way to help on site and great guy to work with. My condolences go out to his family at this time.

I only knew Sean through work but could not agree more about his jovial character and yet at the same time complete professionalism! It is rare in the working world that you make instant friendships with your clients but I could not have enjoyed working with Sean more! My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
He really was a complete legend and I will only ever have fond memories of this incredible man.
May he rest in peace

I worked with Sean about 30 years ago we did our apprenticeship together. We were on the tools at stansted for about 10 years and I have some great memories of working with him and even better memories of him after work in the pubs around Ilford. He was always a good laugh and I classed him as friend not just a colleague even though we had lost touch in recent years.
I am saddened to hear of his passing, it’s a great loss to his family and friends as well as to the industry as there are not many sparks like him out there.
