Memorial Service for Brian Donohoe

The Scotland Island Rural Fire Brigade hosted a memorial service for Brian Donohoe on Sunday 28th June.
 
Brian lost his battle with Leukaemia on 11 June after it turned aggressive 3 months ago and will be sadly missed by his partner Jill and his family.
 
Brian joined the Scotland Island Fire Brigade in 2002 and was a very active member.  He then also joined the Community First Responder team who are called out to medical emergencies on the island, when the unit first started in 2011.

At the request of Brian's family his ashes were scattered on Pittwater following a short ceremony at Tennis Wharf where Assistant Commissioner Steve Yorke spoke in appreciation of Brian’s service to the Scotland Island community through his work with the Rural Fire Service and Ambulance NSW.
 
This was followed by a farewell get together at the fire station where Brian’s partner Jill was presented with Brian’s 10 year service medal from the RFS by Assistant Commissioner Steve Yorke and his service appreciation certificate from Ambulance NSW by Inspector Grahame Rathbone. Member and guests then shared memories of Brian with Jill and family over refreshments.
 
Brian will be sadly missed by all of us.
