Members of the London Ambulance Service Unison branch have paid tribute to a ‘much-loved’ colleague who passed away earlier this week.
Robbie Muir passed away on Wednesday 16th December after a short illness in hospital.
Robbie joined the London Ambulance Service 25 years ago and spent all of his career based out of Romford, east London.
A spokesperson for the LAS Unison Branch said:
‘Robbie was a genuine, happy-go-lucky, cheeky Essex boy that when you met him, you always remembered his name!
‘His love of going to ‘gigs, scooter rallies & weekends away’ were second to none. Whenever you spoke to him, he had so much planned with the music scene (especially the Ska scene) throughout the year.
‘Known as “Monkey” by some of his colleagues at Romford Station and “Bounce” by his mates on the scooter scene.
‘If you ever had any problems, Robbie would always be there, it may have been just a listening ear, or a meet up for a pint you could always rely on Robbie.
‘Robbie lived with his partner Jo and our love and best wishes go to her, and their families’.
Robbie’s death comes less than six months after Romford complex lost another member of its emergency ambulance staff, Jamie Lamb.
Robbie was Jamie’s best man when he got married in August last year.
The spokesperson added:
“This has been a terrible year across the Country but a really bad year for losing two faithful comrades at the same workplace.
“Not a day will pass when we are not thinking of you, RIP Monkey and Lambster”.
