The University is saddened to learn of the passing of Arthur Garnett, a former member of staff.
Mark Walton, Head of Procurement in the University’s Finance Office said:
“Arthur Garnett worked at the University for over 20 years until his retirement in July 2018. Initially as the Stores Manager in the Central Stationery Store where I became his line manager in 1996.
“We worked together through the difficult process of closing the store in 2003 and although he held strong views which he was happy to voice, Arthur always maintained his cheery demeanour.
“When the Procurement Office took one of Arthur’s city walking tours in 2010 it was an absolute delight for us all to be entertained and informed by somebody that we still regarded as one of our own. We are all shocked and saddened by his untimely death.”
How very sad. Arthur was such a lovely man, always smiling, kind, generous and so entertaining with his many stories. He made such a good impression on everyone he met. I was particularly grateful that he looked after our overseas delegates so well when we have organised conferences in Liverpool. He will be sadly missed.
So sad to hear this news. Arthur was a lovely man who always wore a smile. He was helpful and always had a story to tell. A face of the University I’ll always remember.
So very Sad. Arthur was a lovely man, who would always stop for a chat
and if he could help you , he would do.
Thinking of his family 🙁
So very sad to hear about Arthur’s passing he was such a lovely smiley person and he was always pleasure to chat to. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time x
Arthur was such a lovely, kind, helpful person and a pleasure to work with. We’ll miss him.
Each and every conversation with Arthur was entertaining. Whether it was regarding his time with the TA, his car boot sale weekends or his historical walks you were always guaranteed a laugh. So sad he never got to enjoy the long and happy retirement he deserved.
So sad to hear about Arthur. He was such a lovely man, always said hello to you when walking around Campus. Such a shame. My thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.
Very sorry to hear this, Arthur was a lovely man, very helpful and always friendly and cheery.
Arthur was a lovely man, very knowledgeable and proud of his city, always smiley and a funny man to be around – He will be missed 🙁
