Notice from James Newsome about his father's death

 My father, David Russell Newsome, BSc Hons, CEng, MIChemE, Managing Director and founder of the modern day Capital Refractories Limited, died suddenly on 19th September, aged 67 years.

 

With his long time partner and brother-in-law, Graham Stuart Harris, my father acquired Capital Refractories Limited in 1981. At the time, the company could be described as a small company trading locally in refractory materials. Very soon after taking charge of Capital, my father had identified opportunities to improve steel foundries’ refractory quality and performance with a range of high tech refractory materials. For 28 years my father’s entrepreneurialism, vision, strength, charisma and sense of humour has characterised the company itself.

 

Following the acquisition of manufacturing facilities during the mid 1980’s my father led a drive into opening up export markets. His strategy of development of the highest quality refractory products with hands-on sales and technical support has underpinned the success of the company. With his colleagues’ help, my father led Capital to its position today - a highly respected, successful, worldwide company.

 

As his son, I feel tremendously privileged to have worked so closely with him for the past 14 years during which time we have been able to share a joint vision – an opportunity that few sons have.

 

Although Capital was an enormous part of his life, my father was utterly devoted to his family – speaking on behalf of my mother Deirdre and my brother Paul, we will miss him so very much.

 

The arrangements for my father’s funeral are Friday 2nd October, 12 noon at St. Nicholas Church, Abbots Bromley WS15 3BP and afterwards at the Meynell Ingram Arms at Hoar Cross DE13 8RB.

 

Any colleague or associate, past or present, who would like to attend will be warmly welcomed.

 

No flowers please but donations to Katharine House Hospice (Stafford) may be sent to F. M. and J. Wait Funeral Directors, 25 Bird Street, Lichfield, WS13 5PW, 01543 263138.

 

On behalf of my family I would like to thank everyone who has sent messages of support.
