It was with great sadness at the end of April that news came of the sudden death of Trevor Gooch.
He was a metallurgist of international reputation who won many awards and accolades both in the UK and USA and was respected throughout the world, which he travelled extensively. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of reports, papers and work done in his field of stainless steels over 30 years or more and played a major role in key Committees of the IIW and NACE.
Authoritative and an excellent ambassador for TWI he continually undervalued his own contribution and was generous in praise of others. Many received help, guidance and kindness from him.
Trevor was a modest man and a true professional. He will be missed greatly by those who worked with him or knew him, however briefly.
