(Abington, IN)--The man largely credited with developing and growing the Abington Volunteer Fire Department has died.  Bill Paddock died Wednesday.  Paddock was widely known among Wayne County firefighting agencies and served as fire chief in Abington for more than 20 years.  Visitation and services are pending.  And, in some other Abington news, what was expected to be a contentious meeting of Abington Township Trustees Wednesday night was postponed.  It would have been the first meeting since a firefighter was fired and the chief was suspended after allegations surfaced about the actions of Abington Township Trustee Steve Kaiser.  The meeting now is set for this coming Tuesday.
