The Passing of Fire Chief Frederick Arthur Stanley

The Passing of Fire Chief Frederick Arthur Stanley

It is with deep sadness and profound respect that we announce the passing of our good friend and colleague, Chief Frederick Arthur Stanley.

Chief Stanley passed away today in his home with his wife Sylvia, and his family at his side. He was 83 years old.

Although we may have known this was coming, it is no less of a shock to know that we will no longer hear his voice and see his smile.

 As we contemplate the loss to his family, friends and the fire service, we can take heart that we knew this legend of a man who so many would emulate.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and the members of the HVWFD.
