Crew Manager Mark Butler
18th December 1963 - 1st May 2019
On Wednesday 1st May 2019 Mark sadly lost his battle with Cancer. Mark has served both East & West Sussex for nearly 37 years.
For many years Mark gave so much to his local community in Haywards Heath through teaching people to drive safely with his Trimark driving school, many charity events and serving as a Crew Manager at his local fire station providing 80-120 hours on call per week. He has supported all his crew in and outside of work, and will always be a big part of the family at Haywards Heath fire station.
In February 2019 Mark and his family, wife Sarah, daughter Megan and son Adam were informed that his cancer had come back and was unfortunately no longer curable. His friends and family put together an event called 'Bald4Butler'. It speaks volumes for Mark as a person as they raised £7697 in just over four weeks.
On Tuesday 30th April Mark was awarded the Chief Fire Officers life time achievement award for his contribution to his community. No one deserves this award more than Mark, we are all so proud of him and his life time of heroism.
Mark Butler passed away in his sleep on Wednesday 1st May 2019. Rest in peace Mark, you will never be forgotten.
