It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of one of APSI’s members, Graham Wignall from Lancashire. Graham was Watch Manager of the Fire Protection Department at Chorley Fire Station, having served in Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service since January 1994. He was 53.
On a personal note, back in the 80s Graham was a popular member of the Great Britain Junior Olympic Skeet team, where his calm demeanour and excellent shooting skills marked him for greater things in that discipline had life not taken him in a different direction.
He completed an APSI coaching course some years back and regularly coached at Ribble Bank Field Sports. He leaves a wife, Elaine, and family, to whom we send our heartfelt condolences.
Graham’s funeral will be held on Monday, March 16th at 1300 hrs, at West Lancs. Crematorium, Pippin Street, Ormskirk, L40 7SP
