Ian Brough (Husband, Friend and Colleague)

A tribute byMonica Brough

To a wonderful husband, father, friend and colleague who bravely bore this wickedly cruel disease without complaint. He died peacefully at home in Dubai on 5th February in an atmosphere of calm and love. Thank you Ian for being the man you were. Xxx

Ian Brough was one of the most professional,knowledgeable and nicest person that I have ever had the opportunity to meet.He always made the time to help and advise and even under stress with his dry sense of humor had the ability to get things back on track.Simply the best.

A tribute byDouglas MacAskill

Ian's steady - calming, caring presence, keen intellect, and dry sense of humor will be missed by all who met and worked with him. He cared about others before himself and absolutely never had an unkind word to say about anyone (although he did have plenty of good reasons and opportunity). He was a big part of my life and career, and Yas Island would not be what it is today without Ian's sacrifice, dedication and contributions. Bye for now Ian!

A tribute byHannah

I had the privilege to work for and with Ian for three years on Yas Island and in that time I learnt so much from someone I will always consider as a mentor and friend. Ian was always an oasis of calm and wisdom in an often frenetic and chaotic environment, with the added bonus of a wicked sense of humour. Ian you will be missed, but never forgotten.

A tribute byLloyd Ross

Ian was always generous with his time and his wisdom and I took both from him on numerous occasions which have since helped shape my professional career - to which I am forever grateful. Always up for a laugh, he made working on Yas Island a very memorable, fun and interesting experience. He will be sorely missed.

Ian, what to say? Perhaps if not for you, I may never have found myself here in the UAE. I thank you for that initial opportunity (and the life and work experiences that followed), and for the mentoring, guidance and support you provided along the way. Your patience & wisdom will be truly missed. (No doubt you'll have one eye on the MCG this weekend - go the Aussies.)

A tribute byArchie Walker MBE

It was with great sadness that I heard of Ian' passing. I had worked with Ian on several UK projects. Ian was a very professional engineer who had the ability to listen to others whilst being very constructive in his views. Over and above his professional ability, I always found Ian to be an extremely nice guy, who was a great asset to the team. Not many of his type around

Epitaph On A Friend

An honest man here lies at rest,
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so inform'd;
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.

KBR has lost one of the company pillars. Ian was my line manager for two years. He was so polite, gentle and helpful.

A tribute byJo-Anne Guthrie

Ian, Time seems to be moving on so quickly since you left us but you will always remain in our memories as a kind and gentle person who showed immense strength right up until the end. We have lost a true friend, mentor and colleague and KBR will not be the same without you.
