It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our friend Carl Diem. Carl passed away Wednesday night after a hard fought battle with cancer.
Carl was one of a kind. A guy that would help you do ANYTHING at ANY TIME. Carl never seemed mad, and was always smiling. He absolutely loved being a member of the Fire Company and being the Fire Police Captain. He also loved trading barbs with the guys every morning at the firehouse.
Carl was a dedicated public servant, having responded to thousands of calls and helping with almost everything we did. He actually received the nickname “Extra Credit Carl” because he not only responded to all the fire calls like other members, but he got “extra credit” by responding to fire police calls too.
Please remember all of the good times that we had working with Carl, and please keep his wife Jackie and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
There will be a memorial service for Carl, and the information for that will be posted when we have all the details.
