My Dad’s Death, FDIC & Huron Rescue Squad Fund

By now many of you know I scrambled out of the last classroom session at FDIC due to a medical emergency back home.  My dad went into cardiac arrest, but was given every shot at survival due to the early activation of EMS by my father-in-law, the Huron Fire Department, and numerous hospital personnel.  I made it to the hospital Friday night, but after two trips to the cath lab, the interventions were ultimately not life sustaining.  But…I made it.  Thanks Kevin.

My main reason for this post at this time is that many have sent prayers and offered help of all kinds.  Thank you.  Dad liked to work hard, play hard, and would certainly like some good to come out of some rough times, so here’s how.

Earlier today, we decided to direct memorial contributions in my dad’s memory to the Huron Fire Department Rescue Squad Fund.  This fund is a trust that is overseen by a board who approves spending of those monies.  Over the years, purchases of equipment with money from the memorial contributions of many have saved lives and given others like my dad a shot.  If you so desire, please make your memorial contributions to this fund to assist in ensuring the Huron Fire Department continues to have every life saving piece of equipment possible now and into the future.

My class at FDIC went great and I met up with some old friends and met some new.  Next week sometime I’ll get back in the loop and share more on the trip.

Pass it on!
