Mr Paul Stevenson, formerly of RHP Bearings, dies after battle with leukaemia, aged 78
The former managing director of RHP Bearings, Mr Paul Stevenson, has died after a short battle with leukaemia, aged 78.
Mr Stevenson died at King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, just three months after his family were given the devastating news of the diagnosis — just as the country went into lockdown over coronavirus.
He was a long-standing managing director of RHP Bearings and director at NSK.
Mr Stevenson was born in Stapleford, Nottinghamshire, and moved to Newark in 1968 to join RHP as an accountant.
He moved quickly up through the ranks, becoming financial director, and then managing director, before retiring as a director from NSK in 1997 after 30 years with the company.
A former Rotarian and long-standing member of Newark Golf Club, Mr Stevenson leaves his devoted wife Rita, three children and seven grandchildren.
