    Goodbye buddy your gone but will never be forgotten by North East it was great to see you loved like all of us to swing the light. Toose I will be very sad when you do not turn up for our regular sessions. RIP Old Buddy.

  13. I fist met Toose at one of our North East get-togethers. We shared similar, often sad and tragic, experiences of serving the people of Durham and Gateshead. I recognized Toose’s integrity and contribution to the community. He was a brave Gateshead fireman. And brave to the last. Stan Smith summed it up when he told me he was ‘hurting’. We all are. I can’t imagine what Toose’s family must be feeling. A great man and a great friend.

    Sad and shocked to hear of my good friend Paul’s (Toose) sudden passing. Our condolences to Josie and family. He has always been in good spirits every time that I have spoken and seen him in the past twelve months safe passage and fair winds my friend.

  15. Alec Simpson says:

    Those of us in the NE who knew him well suspected things were a lot worse than what he was telling us,it therefore has come as a devastating shock to us all at the suddenness of his
    death.Toose was a true friend,a good Aircraft Handler,one of life’s true gentlemen.Like us all
    He loved nothing better than telling stories of his life as an Aircraft Handler.I can not express
    at this time my feelings,but for sure I will miss him,but he will always hold special memories,and be in my thoughts forever.Rest in Peace Old Friend.
