It is with the deepest regret that here at GRM we have to announce that our much-loved friend and colleague Tony Heron suddenly passed away on the 13th December 2017.


Tony was our Senior Field technician and had been with GRM for almost 20 years. Although Tony was starting to spend more time in the office, he was never happier than when he was out in the field getting his hands dirty, be it gas monitoring, window sampling or soakaway testing.

His work hard attitude continued outside of work too and was the go-to man if any help was needed such as painting, tiling, laying patios and he even turned his hand to building pizza ovens and aviaries. Tony could always be relied on if you needed a helping hand and regularly supported charities such as Rainbows and Breast Cancer Awareness.

When he was not working, Tony enjoyed playing bowls, pool and darts for pub teams in the Burton area. He also actively played badminton, regularly putting the younger members of GRM to shame.

Tony also enjoyed trips out with the GRM cyclists, firstly pedalling along and then supporting trips to Scotland, Paris, the D Day beaches and St Mon Michel. He was always a welcome sight on the rides, particularly when he appeared with a tray full of pastries.

Tony will be sorely missed by all at GRM and our thoughts are with his family at this sad time. Tony’s funeral is being held at 3 pm at Bretby Crematorium on the 8th January 2018. As a result, GRM’s office will be closed from 2 pm on the 8th.
