TONY’S LEFT A HUGE HOLE IN OUR LIVES

- By Giles Sheldrick

AMBULANCE technician Tony Chadbourne devoted 23 years to serving the NHS in Nottingham­shire and Lincolnshi­re.

The 46-year-old – also known as Chad – died just before Christmas. His family said: “Nothing was too much trouble for Tony whose huge heart meant he went above and beyond for his patients, colleagues and friends.”

Workmate Alastair Smith said: “Chad leaves a huge hole in mine and many others’ lives.

“While I know his mum and brother are distraught, they are both immensely proud of Tony’s achievemen­ts.”

He added that Tony was famous for getting stuck on a London-bound train while assisting a patient – with his kit on the platform at Newark.

Alastair said: “I will never forget the giggles that came from Chad when he told me he was in Grantham and had to catch the next train back. His colleagues never allowed him to forget this incident.”
