Vol. Christy Lynch (Order of Malta Ambulance Corps) 02/12/14
Yesterday the Order of Malta lost a great member while he was on duty doing what he loved and helping the community he cared about so much. While I did not know him much I still feel he deserves a slot in our memorial section. I have shared bellow the words of the wexford units Officer in charge :

Loss of a Colleague, Friend and Brother.

People that work in the Emergency Services, whether it is statutory, private or voluntary rightfully refer to themselves as family. The loss felt when one of those family members passes on is even more heartfelt when that person dies doing work to which they have committed so much of their life. Although small in stature, Christy Lynch was a giant of a man to those who knew him. Always willing to lend a hand, or an ear where it was needed, for over 20 years Christy dedicated himself to carrying out the work of the Order of Malta both at home and abroad, not only through his actions but also in his attitude towards those who worked alongside him or who needed his help. Today Christy moved on to earn the eternal rewards that were his due in the manner he would have wished for, dressed in the uniform that he was so proud to wear and doing the duties that he loved. For a small man he will leave a big hole in the lives of all those he touched and who were lucky enough to have known him.
