Driver Hire York & Harrogate suffered a sad loss within the Driving community recently.

Alan Kilbride was our most popular Class 1/ Hiab driver with years of experience behind him and has been with us at Driver Hire York & Harrogate for over 10 years. He was often requested by our Clients by name and Alan was the driver we called upon to take newly qualified drivers / Hiab drivers out for a day’s training – of which he would do without asking for anything in return.

Alan had a passion for flying and was a qualified instructor, spending most weekends flying his own plane. Recently he had been into the office to tell us about his weekend plans flying during Remembrance Sunday. Unfortunately on Sunday 14th November whilst doing what he loved most, Alan had a tragic accident.

We know how popular Alan was within the Driving and Flying community and he will be sorely missed by all. We will also miss him coming to see us here in the office for a quick chat and a cuppa.

Many thanks must go to the Driver Hire Benevolent Fund for your support and contribution to Alan’s family who he leaves behind – his wife Denise, children and grandchildren.

Blue Skies Alan.
