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.
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.
