Latest News Flash
It is with deep regret that I advise of the passing of Divisional Tom Mutton ( retired) , Wellington Fire Brigade.
Tom passed away during the evening of the 12th February 2020.
Tom will be remembered by many as he was well know in the Wellington area as well as serving with other brigades over his lengthy service.
Tom joined the Lyttleton brigade in 1958 serving there before joining the career staff in Christchurch in 1962.
In 1969 he transferred to Tauranga, and again transferred to the Wellington Brigade in 1971.
On retiring from the Wellington brigade in 1995, Tom served in the Otaki Volunteer brigade until early 2003.
The detail of Tom’s funeral is as follows.
Thursday 20th February 2020 in Otaki at 1.30pm
The plan is to take Tom on the old fire engine from 150B Mill Road, Otaki at 1.30pm walk past the Fire Station to Harvey Bowlers Chapel in Rangatira Street, where Tom will be transferred to a Hurst for private cremation.
Then walk to the Otaki RSA, Raukawa Street for a celebration of his life.
Red and Black are the colours of the day.
At this sad time we extend our sincere condolences to Jean and family along with Tom’s friends.
Rest in peace Tom
