It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our brother firefighter and dear friend, David Merkel.
Obituary of David Merkel:

A loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, David spent his life helping others. He became a fireman at Ridge Culver Fire Dept. when he was 18 and then on to Webster Fire Dept. for another 48 years.
