I remember May 5, 1970 as if were yesterday. I was a new Firefighter with Company 2, O.W.L., my first call for service as a young firefighter. I was devastated to know that you were only 22 years of age. My deepest sympathy goes to your family loosing you at such a young age. Thank you for your service and dedication to the citizens of Virginia, you are truly missed.
