David’s family welcomes anyone who wishes to attend the funeral on Friday, 3rd March at the South Chapel, Chelmsford Crematorium at 3.30pm.

They have also asked for family flowers only.  All are welcome to join the service, and St Augustine’s Church Hall, North Springfield, for refreshments afterwards.

All uniformed staff are invited to join David’s Guard of Honour. If you are hoping to attend the funeral or can provide any support covering shifts in mid Essex so that colleagues and friends can attend, please contact Tim Wigginton on

Sandra Chick, Mid Essex Senior Locality Manager, said: “David spent his entire career within the service caring for patients in Essex and spent many of these years working at Witham station as an emergency medical technician (EMT) before he retired.  He was a much-loved and respected member of our ambulance service family and will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this sad time”.
