Dear Friends & Supporters,

It is with deep sadness & regret that we announce that Alan Adkins, retired Lifeboat Helmsman, Hovercraft Commander & more recently one of our hardworking Deputy Launching Authorities passed away peacefully on Sunday 1st December after a short illness.

Those of us that had the pleasure of knowing & working with Alan were greatly fortunate in this respect. Alan was a true gentlemen with a highly tuned sense of wit that he never focused unkindly. He was genuinely one of life’s givers lifting the mood in any situation and his presence in a Lifeboat or around the Station was always welcome.

Alan will be greatly missed by all of us at the Station & our thoughts are with his family at this time as they deal with the loss of a fantastic husband & father.

Yours sincerely,

Southend-on-Sea Lifeboat Station
