Obituary - Ken Goodson, formerly of Treka Bus

Ken Goodson, formerly of Treka Bus

Ken Goodson, formerly Sales Director of Brighouse-based minibus bodybuilder and converter Treka Bus, passed away peacefully at the age of 75 on Monday 4 September after a short illness.

Often regarded as ‘Mr Treka’, Mr Goodson was known by many for his work in the accessible minibus industry, firstly at Wadham Stringer and then Bedwas Bodyworks, followed by UV Modular and finally Treka Bus.

During his career, Mr Goodson worked closely with a wide range of Treka customers, including Dawsonrentals, London Hire, many local authorities, community transport organisations and charities, garnering great respect from all that those met him.

“Ken played a significant role in raising the standards of wheelchair accessible vehicles in the UK through his years of diligent work, the results of which are still evident today,” says Treka Bus MD Mark Clissett. Mr Goodson is survived by his wife Annie.
