It’s we deep regret that I have to inform you of the passing of Paul Kerkin this morning.
Paul joined OTC in approximately 1974 and retired from Reach in mid 2011.
Paul had a melanoma removed several years ago and was given a clean bill of health but a medical check undertaken approximately six weeks ago showed that the cancer had returned. It was obviously a very aggressive cancer that must have spread very quickly.
This information has been provided by Ken Arnold who still works at the Paddington terminal and knew Paul very well.
I will update this blog once I have details of the funeral arrangements.
