Family Say Goodbye To Tom Ossel
The funeral of a firefighter shot dead in Venezuela last month is to be held today (Friday August 19th).
London Fire fighter Tom Ossel, 28, from Bedford, was killed in his hotel while staying in Margarita Isle, Venezuela, during a six week trip around South America with his brother Jack.
Tom was shot in the jaw and Jack, a 21 year old student, was stabbed. It is believed the brothers were attacked while resisting robbers.
The funeral is being held for family, friends and colleagues at 1.45pm at Bedford Crematorium, Norse Road, Bedford.
The family have asked that instead of flowers, a donation can be made to the East Africa Famine Appeal at www.savethechildren.org.uk
