Last week I attended the funeral of Brian Nealon. The news of his death came as a great shock to me as Brian was a keen runner & skier. I was also immensely saddened for Brian was a really nice man whom I happened to meet through business. Michael Farmer referred Brian to me with similar words and many of Brian’s business contacts agree. I discovered from the eulogies from the Fork Lift Truck Association and family of Brian’s charity work, his bargaining skills and some hilarious weaknesses. He was always honest but courteous, a real gentleman.
Brian had real engineering skills, from Formula 1 racing as Jim Clark’s engine turner to decades of experience with Forklift Trucks and a passion for the history of the ‘lift truck’. His weaknesses was digital technology which is how I came to help him and also deal with his two sons Alastair & Duncan who had helped him with the web.
In this last week I have seen a lot more of the two sons that Brian was rightly proud of. Duncan will succeed Brian as MD of Bendigo Mitchell Limited and will bring fresh marketing ideas to add to the high levels of quality and service of the BML team.
