It was with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Fleet Staff Coxswain Francie Morgan, who has supported Seahouses RNLI over the last 14 months. He returned home to Newcastle in Northern Ireland on Sunday, and was to perform a short period of cover at Ballyglass. He was walking his dog “Murphy” this morning (Monday 8th April 2019), when he collapsed and died. A true gent. We owe him so much. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, and his former home RNLI station at Newcastle, Northern Ireland.
“Wrap me up in me oilskin and jumper
No more on the docks I’ll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates
I’m taking a trip, mates
And I’ll see you one day in Fiddler’s Green”
Francie MORGAN RIP !
