Andrew MacQueen, 62, was a brave volunteer for the RNLI on and off, for around 34 years. This morning an emotional memorial service was held at Newhaven beach with Newhaven Lifeboat and crew in attendance, providing a flare salute.
Andy was provided with a guard of honor by the RNLI though Newhaven town. Volunteering at only age 17, he dedicated his life to saving those who need help most.
We at Sussex News, send our thoughts and condolence to Andy’s family and friends at this difficult time. Andy leaves behind, his wife Joy, and three children from a previous marriage, Courtney, Scott and Hadleigh.
