It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mr Syd Lovesey on the 11th April 2018, at the age of 98. Mr Lovesey was a wonderfully passionate former employee and the guiding force behind what was the Bristol Aeroplane Company. He dedicated many years of his life to the aviation industry as an aircraft engineer until the end of  World War II. His vast engineering knowledge saw him design the electrics of the Bristol 400 motor car under the newly formed Car Division. He was later promoted to Factory Manager of Bristol Cars Ltd until 2011.

A courteous, honest gentleman who will be greatly missed.

For more information, the Bristol Owners Heritage Trust have written a piece, commemorating the life of Syd Lovesey.
