It is with sadness that we announce the passing of two individuals in the last week from the LVFD family and extended family. Marvin Gimplin, LVFD administrative member, passed away earlier this week. He was the father of LVFD Firefighter Debbie Fairall and father-in-law to Captain John Fairall.  Marvin had been a member since March 2007 and was active on the Company Picnic Committee and the Constitution and By-laws committee. He was a fixture in the kitchen and at the grill from start to finish during the Laurel July 4th celebration and would ensure that there was always something to eat for the multiple fire department crews and the city employees. He enjoyed rolling up his sleeves and assisting the other members and the department whenever and however possible.

CandlesRobert Koubeck, father of LVFD member and Recording Secretary Careen Koubeck passed away February 11,2017 after battling cancer for the past year.

Please keep Debbie,John, Careen and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
