Denis began working in Patrick Lynch’s Electrical Contractor’s (2 Burgh Quay) in the 1960’s and continued to work there until the late 1980’s. He was the Store’s Manager and was well known throughout the electrical industry. In the late 1980’s Denis began working for Botanic Electrical Wholesalers Ltd. as a Sales Executive and was also a CoDirector of Reliable Security Products. Even after his reluctant retirement in 2000, Denis often popped in to his former customers and colleagues for a chat and a catch up. He will be sadly missed by his children, Denise, Yvonne, Andrew, Anita and Ciarán and all his family and friends in the industry. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our great friend and colleague Gerard Malone. Gerard worked in Precision Cables for 21 years and was the rst point of contact and friendly voice for all our clients. His joyful persona and attitude to life was infectious, coupled with the resilience he showed in the face of his disability, he was a constant inspiration to all who had the honour of knowing him . Rest in Peace Gerard. Gerard Malone 1966 - 2023
