Liveryman Paul Fuller
It is with much sadness that the Company has been informed of the passing of Liveryman Paul Fuller aged 60 years after a short illness.
Paul passed way in hospital early this morning with his family present having been recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and taken into hospital last week.
Paul became a Liveryman in 2018 and a member of Court earlier this year.
Born in 1960, Paul was a member of the Fire and Rescue Service for 42 years serving in West Midlands, West Sussex, Staffordshire, Wiltshire and became Chief Fire Officer of Bedfordshire and Luton in 2002 and was due to retire on 30th June this year.
He was resoundingly respected in the wider Fire and Rescue Service family and elsewhere making a significant contribution to many National Committees and the Firefighters Charity and was also a Deputy Lieutenant in the County of Bedfordshire.
Company Members may recall the work of Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service during the first wave of the Coronavirus Pandemic in Paul’s article in last summers of “Salamander”.
I am sure all of the Company will join me in expressing our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to his wife Helen, daughter Jess and all of his family at this very sad time.
The Company will be formally sending their condolences to Helen and the family, but for those wishing to send personal messages his home address in West Sussex can be found in the Company Directory or obtained via Steven Tamcken, The Clerk.
Funeral arrangements will be notified in a further communication once these are known.
