A boy who left school at 15 went on to make a big splash in the plumbing industry in Rugby.
Ian Brown, 64, joined Robothoms of Rugby, and spent all his career working with the same firm.
“I followed in the footsteps of my brother Ray,” said Ian, of The Woodlands.
He has worked with three generations of the family during his time at Robothoms of Rugby, in Manor Road.
Ian enjoys spending time with his family and motorbiking.
He recalls unblocking a toilet at Rugby Masonic Hall. Ian added: “It was a pair of false teeth that were to blame!”
