He held the position of president for the Cuyuna Range Fire Chiefs association for several years. He also served a short stint as an interim Fire Chief in the city of Austin, Mn. He was very passionate about his involvement as the Chairman of the Minnesota Fire Service Certification board from 2008-2022. His passion for fire service lead him to also become a firefighter instructor, passing on his expertise to other future firefighters. His true love however, was spending time with his family and attending his grandchildren’s activities and sporting events! He will be greatly missed.
