Trevor Dickenson a very special person:
A sad loss and will be sorely missed.
I am very sorry to have to report the sad loss of Trevor Dickenson.
He passed away aged 51 on Friday 3rd August at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, with the funeral service having been held at Telford Crematorium on Tuesday 21 August.
Trevor [Trev to his friends] had fought bravely against the effects of serious kidney problems over the past eight years.
Despite his illness Trevor was an enthusiastic trade unionist.
He was a regular attendee at Unite Telford branch meetings, he was the branch treasurer and a delegate to Shropshire and Telford Trades Council.
He threw himself ‘body and soul’ into the Unite General Secretary election campaign for Jerry Hicks in 2010, and in recent years, the fight against public spending cuts.
He was also an active campaigner for disability rights.
Trevor was a very special person indeed. He was always willing to go out of his way to help people in whatever way he could. This earned him the respect and friendship of all those he met.
He will be sorely missed.
