A Fife stalwart of the North Sea oil and gas industry who championed offshore safety around the world will be remembered for his “love of life, his quick laughter and his mean swing on the golf course”.
David Doig died in hospital in Kirkcaldy on Saturday after suffering a heart attack in Dubai on Hogmanay.
Colleagues and friends described the 57-year-old as a “wonderful man” and a “much-respected industry leader”.
Mr Doig – chief executive of oil and gas training organisation Opito – had been based in the United Arab Emirates overseeing the company’s growth into new markets and the establishment of its first overseas offices in Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Houston and Cyprus.
Mr Doig was born and raised in St Andrews and educated at Madras College and is survived by his wife Gillian, and a grown up daughter and son.
