My condolences go out to the Mitchell family and relatives of James, He was a devoted and dedicated employee to Ben Line spending many hours crawling in and around the double bottoms and structures of the new buildings ensuring specs were kept to by the builders.
He always had a smile and often brought boxes of chocolates back from Germany for the girls in the office .
May god care for him in a new world.
