Rex Garrod 1943 – 2019

Post by The Post Office »

Rex Garrod died 8 April 2019.
I remember him from "The Secret Life of Machines" on Channel Four with Tim Hunkin.

Really sad, I don't know how I missed this. Was watching the Secret Life of the Sewing Machine just last night.

Loved how the titles said "Tim Hunkin" in huge letters and "with Rex Garrod" in much smaller letters underneath. Even proper old school engineers have egos.

(Edit to add: I love Tim Hunkin's coffin design in that linked BBC report!)
