GOLDING Contractors has paid tribute to the late Cyril Golding, who died on Sunday morning.

The company, which was founded by Mr Golding in the 1940s, said employees were deeply saddened by his passing.

"He led his contracting business as owner and chairman until his retirement in 2008.

""He was a man who valued a spotless reputation above everything else and was known equally for his philanthropy as he was for his business successes."
