A Southampton University graduate, Richard Dawson had a masters in electronic engineering.
He initially worked in Fareham, buying a house and renting his spare rooms to university friends who were continuing to study.
After a brief flirtation with the ambition to become a fighter pilot in the RAF, Richard settled on engineering – and a mission to climb the ranks in his industry.
Helen said: “He always said he wanted his boss’s job one day, he made no secret of that. He worked hard, but enjoyed the socialising – he loved his food and drink. He was a regular with his friends on a Friday night at a restaurant in St Mary’s, so much so they even consulted him on changing the menu. I often wonder if they ever knew why he hasn’t been back.” (source)
