Surjeet Dhillon

It is with great sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Surjeet Dhillon, the GFTU’s Senior Finance Officer. Surjeet caught COVID-19 and was admitted to ICU this week but unfortunately wasn’t able to recover.

The entire GFTU and Quorn Grange Hotel family and friends of the GFTU are devastated by this news and have sent heartfelt messages to Surjeet’s family and a plan to honour his memory throughout the organisation is currently underway.

Surjeet first started with GFTU in 2019 and immediately built up a great rapport with the team as his kind, caring nature and his positive, can-do attitude always shone through whenever he’d engage in conversation. His smile was contagious, as was his laugh, and there was never a dull moment with him around. He was always a hard worker in whichever task he was given and he would always go the extra mile to meet deadlines.

Surjeet worked closely with the Prison Officers’ Association on behalf of the GFTU and was extremely popular with colleagues there. POA friends share our great sense of loss. The POA’s welfare fund has already made a touching and generous gesture for Surjeet’s family.

Surjeet was a family man; he would mention his loving wife, children and grandchildren often and would take the time to get to know the team as people and built friendships within the organisation.

Surjeet was born in Kenya on 17th January, 1958 and moved to the UK when younger where he lived with his family in Nottingham. Before he joined us, he had a built an impressive career; having worked as a Finance Analyst and Finance Manager for the National Trust.

I’m sure you will join us in sending our deepest condolences to Surjeet’s family and friends and agree with us that Surjeet will never be forgotten, nor will his immeasurable contribution that he not only made to the organisation, but to our lives.
