He joined the Sunblest bakery in 1971 and became chief executive of Allied Bakeries Belfast, as the firm was then called, in 1986, with added responsibility for AB-owned Reid's bakery, Coleraine.Paying tribute to his brother, Alan Hempton said: "He's been a tremendous servant to Allied Bakeries and has always been a great sounding board for me. It is a tremendous tribute to his dedication and determination that he did so much for the bakery during the latter years of his career."
