Clive Gazzard: Most people in the vending world will have heard already about the passing of a man who was a stalwart of the industry. Coffetek has issued a statement regarding the untimely death and Planet Vending is pleased to publish it in full.
It is with a heavy heart that Coffetek announces the passing of one of our much-loved colleagues – Clive Gazzard.
Clive was an outstanding member of the team, who was respected throughout our industry for his personality, expertise and caring nature. Clive’s ability to help people was legendary, never too busy and always there if you needed him. He had an exemplary career within the Coffee and Vending Industry, firstly with Stentorfield (now Crane Merchandising Systems), Wittern, Westomatic and since 2013 with Coffetek. His knowledge unrivaled, his professionalism unquestioned.
On a personal level, Clive managed to delight everyone he worked with, his smile, his sense of humour and of course his laugh!
We have lost a colleague and a friend.
Born in Bristol, Clive was married to Tina, who will miss him dearly.
The funeral will take place on Friday 28th February, 14.45, at Westerleigh Crematorium, Westerleigh Rd, Westerleigh, Bristol BS37 8RF. The wake will be held afterwards at Kings Head Public House, 277-279 Whitehall Rd, Whitehall, Bristol BS5 7BH.
Everyone is welcome and openly encouraged to attend.
