In a statement, Smiffys said: ‘Craig was a highly valued senior member of the Smiffys family and was fiercely loyal to the Peckett family and the Smiffys business.

‘His knowledge, presence, constant smile and good humour will be greatly missed by all of us and our thoughts are with his family in these incredibly difficult circumstances.’

Elliott Peckett, director, commented: “Craig was not only an employee, but a great friend of the family and all who worked with him. He was as much a supporter of our family, as he was of the business. He served some 14 years for the company and was incredibly highly regarded by all who worked with him, both internal and external. Craig always had a friendly smile and a willingness to help and he will be sorely missed.”
