It is with much sadness that John Monks advises us of the death on the 24th April 2019 of Jim Crooks who served as a Staff Sergeant in 59 Commando Squadron RE. Jim was 60 years old. Our condolences to all his Family and friends.

Rest in peace Jim.

Jim's wife Ali has contacted us and adds that her husband died as a result of cancer on 24th April 2019 aged 60. After leaving the army as a Staff Sgt, he retrained as a personnel officer with Devon & Cornwall Police, then became an HR Business Partner at Exeter Prison and finally took on a 4 year Open University Course to retrain as a Paramedic with South West Ambulance Trust - a job that he truly loved.

Loved and missed by his family and friends.
