With heavy hearts, we must announce the passing of Donald Rudderham our founder and President of The Pump House.

Don started the business in 1981 and was a constant as we grew over the years. He loved teaching EVERYONE (customers, staff, salespeople & suppliers)  all he had to know about pumps and thrived on providing exceptional customer service. He loved golf, the cottage, going on trips, he always liked a great party and most of all he loved people and talking to them about anything. He always had a joke and most people that he knew were given a nickname. There was nothing he liked better than chatting with someone at our counter.  

To know him was to love him; there was no one like him and we will all miss him already.

Our deepest sympathy to his wife Shirley’s son Richard and daughter-in-law Dianne and his huge extended family and friends.  

RIP Don, The Pump House won’t be the same without you.
