The funeral of Bruce Davy was held on Wednesday 12th June at St Phillip’s Church, Uckfield following a long battle with cancer.
Bruce served a a paramedic with South East Coast Ambulance Service for more than 30 years and was a retained firefighter at Uckfield for 44 years.
The cortege was lead by a single police motor cyclist, a ambulance from South East Coast Ambulance Service and a Fire Applicance from his home. The ambulance car displayed the name ‘Bruce’ on the bonnet.
It stopped at the end of Keld Avenue in Framfield Road near to the old fire station and then out side the Alma Arms where ‘Sussex by the Sea’ was played over a loudspeaker.
The road near to the church in Newtown was lined by colleagues and service personnel from both services a true tribute to a man held in such high regard for his service to the emergency services over many years.
The service at St Philips was conducted by Rev. David Tutt.
After the service the cortege passed the fire station in Bell Farm Road before proceeding up the High Street to Snatts Road Cemetery.
