Saturday, September 10, 2016   On behalf of the officers and members of the Eddystone Fire Company, It is with the deepest regret we announce the sudden passing of our member William Chalker on Wednesday 07 September 2016.

For many years William was an active part of our Fire Police division.  Throughout the years he served the company and communities with integrity, and a high standard of professionalism.

He was kind, generous, and a vital part of our Fire Police personnel but most importantly he was a friend, a part of our family.

We express our sincere, heart felt condolences to his family in this time of loss.  He will be missed but never forgotton.

In his next Journey to eternal life may he continue to watch over all of us.  And lay his protecting hand upon us as we continue on in service.

With Deepest Regrets,
