It is sad that our mentor, teacher and Chief has passed. He taught all of us on Fire/Rescue and EMS how to do things safely and keep our wits about us. At the GP I was honored, as were so many to be his "boys", even if you were female. WE will miss him greatly at both venues, but as Rick Stockton, Gary Lewandowski, and I have said since his retirement.."WE Got This ,Chief!" HE will always be our Chief.
I hope we do something at WHRRI to honor his memory and his dedication to racing
