He lived a full life of loving others and always paying it forward with Over 20 years in the Air Force and over 35 years with the Midway Fire Department. He was a Division Chief and went home sick on March 11 of this year, was transported to the hospital on March 13 and was diagnosed with cancer that week. He put up one hell of a fight for nearly seven months. During that seven months he continued to stop in at the firehouse. He taught me so much that its not comprehendible. He taught through his daily living. I loved him with all my heart and will dearly miss him. He fought and gave us all six months that we will always cherish on top of all the other great years. He passed in his sleep and now the pain is gone. Thanks to all the Brothers at Midway Fire for the visits and the other family & friends that called, visited, and prayed for him. The prayers were answered. I Love my Dad.
Visitation, Funeral & a celebration of his life is tentatively planned for next Saturday & Sunday. All Fire Service personnel encouraged to wear class A uniform. He served this great country for 20 years in the Air Force inlisting during the Korean Conflict before his 18th birthday and served his community “Midway” through being a firefighter and active with the church the last 45 years. He will always be remembered and continue to guide towards doing what’s RIGHT.
