Frank Aubrey Knighton would have been 94 on the 19th March 2017. Sadly, he passed away peacefully on the 17th August 2016. Having served in the Merchant Service for 4 years during the War, he joined the Fire Service in Leeds in 1946, where he served for 30 years, passing through every rank to reach Divisional Commander. He was also a member of the Institution of Fire Engineers and served as an examiner on the Fire Services Promotion Board for many years.
He retired in 1976 and moved to Nidderdale and then on to the East Coast to Bridlington enjoying his hobbies of gardening, walking and landscape photography. I wish him to be remembered in this season of the daffodils.
"and then my heart and pleasure fills
and dances with the daffodils" - Wordsworth
Forever in our hearts, R.I.P., Patience and Lorraine

Every year, thousands of fire fighters are injured whilst protecting the public. Every 30 seconds in the UK, fire fighters are called to an incident, putting their lives on the line, and often sustaining physical injuries whilst carrying out their duties. The Fire Fighters Charity is here for fire fighters during their times of need, and assists thousands of individuals every year, by providing pioneering treatment and support services.
