On this Memorial Day weekend when we remember and pay tribute to all the members of the Military, Police, Fire and EMS who have served this country, it is with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to one of our own.
FF/EMT Juan Bucio passed away this evening in the performance of his duties. He was a respected and loved member of our unit. Juan was above all a very caring human being and loving father. He will be sorely missed.
Please keep his boys, family and friends in your thoughts and prayers!
RIP Brother!
