It is with deep regret that I advise the passing of David Kaye and Alan Young (QSM) both from the Napier Fire Brigade.

Dave Kaye was also heavily involved in the NZ Fire Service outdoor bowls and passed away last week .

His Service is to be held in Napier on Friday  1st November 2019. No other details known at this stage.

At this sad time we extend our sincere condolences  to Helen and Family as well as David’s friends.

Ivan Young (QSM)  saw service with the Napier Fire Police unit  and was a Ex member at the time of his death. His funeral was held earlier this afternoon (29 October) at the Napier Fire Station.

At this sad time we extend our sincere condolences to Marie and family as well as Ivan’s friends

It is with regret that I wish to inform you on the passing of Ex SSO Andrew Voss of the PNFB Operational Support Unit.

 Andrew passed away on 21 October at home. He is survived by his wife Jean. Andrew served, I think about 36 years in Palmerston North. First as Fire Police then on to Operational support (amalgamation of Fire Police Unit and Volunteer Unit )

A Private cremation has been held as per Andrews wishes.

At this sad time we extend our deepest sympathy to Jean and family as well as Andrews friends.

Kind Regards

John May
