Obituaries - David Rogers and John Logie

It is with great regret that the institution has learned of the recent deaths of two members.

David Rogers, a former ICE vice president and recipient of the Garth Watson Medal for outstanding services to ICE, died suddenly three days before Christmas.

In his professional career Rogers had been borough engineer of Sutton Coldfield, city engineer of Birmingham and a divisional director of Mott MacDonald. For over 30 years he served the former Institution of Municipal Engineers, the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Engineering Council.

Among the many boards, panels and committees he served on he had a passionate belief in education and training having served on the Chilver Committee, ICE Education and Training Committee and as chairman of the Joint Board of Moderators. Latterly he developed strong education links with China and was UK representative on FEANI (Fédération Européene d'Assocations Nationales d'Ingénieurs).

He will be sadly missed by his many friends and colleagues.

John Logie, chairman of the Glasgow and West of Scotland ICE branch from 1982-83, died at the age of 80 on 4 December 2007. John ran the Glasgow office of Bullen & Partners for many years and was highly regarded throughout the civil engineering industry in Scotland.

Logie's interests were extensive and included the church, Rotary and music. He was also an accomplished golfer and curler.

He is survived by his wife Alison and their three children.
