We were very proud to have had a member who was so very active as Paul was in the fire community, not least in his support for our Charitable Trust and of course the Children’s “Burns Camp” in particular. We remember especially the very passionate and interesting talk he gave on the issue at one of
our Charity Dinners.
Paul was adored by all his family and friends from many walks of life. He was respected and valued for his ability to make everyone feel at ease and to feel important. He was always there to offer help, support or assistance. He was fun loving and highly entertaining. He was hugely loyal to his family, Helen, Jess, Amy and Ben - they all felt blessed to have had him in their lives and our thoughts and hearts go out to them at this sad time for them.
