Councillor Ian Razzell, Rutland County Council Armed Forces Champion, has paid the following tribute to Air Vice Marshall Nigel Sudborough.
Following the sad news about the passing of Nigel Sudborough, Rutland County Council wishes to recognise an extraordinary life of service and devotion to duty.
A consummate professional, Nigel had a glittering military career in the Royal Air Force and was hugely passionate about all service personnel and their families. Beyond this, he also invested a significant amount of time in cadet organisations and was a firm supporter of the Lord-Lieutenant in Rutland for many years.
Hugely missed by so many, his Chairmanship of the Oakham branch of the Royal British Legion will be hard shoes to fill. Rutland feels the loss of a much respected resident and public servant.
