Tribute: Paul Bartlett

  |  Published: Jul 1st 2010

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of one of RAF Halton’s members. On Friday 7th May 2010, Mr Paul Bartlett died suddenly whilst tending his allotment at Royal Air Force Halton, aged only 58.

Paul Served in the RAF, reaching Senior Non-Commissioned Officer level, until leaving shortly after completing his 22 years service. He then returned to the military scene as a Civil Servant, working firstly in Accounts and then Training Resources.

Paul always maintained very close links with the RAF and was a key figure in the Halton Branch of the RAF Association Club, not only holding the position of Branch Chairman, but was also the main driving force behind the facility maintenance. He was constantly working at the premises and was heavily involved in the recent redecoration of the internal walls. His dedication knew no bounds as he recently took leave to finish off some work at the Club.

Paul was a familiar sight at the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess, attending most of the functions. He was an old style type of guy, who believed in the value of getting his own hands dirty in order to get the job done right. He was a man who gave everything towards a project; a perfectionist at heart.

Paul is survived by his loving wife Alwyn and his two sons Phillip and James. He leaves a gaping hole in the fabric of RAF Halton and will be greatly missed by his family, friends and many colleagues.
