Ex-Chief, Ex-Commissioner, Ex-department and district treasurer Samuel Klee better know as Sammy was looking forward to receiving his 60th year of service award at our Installation dinner on March 31st. Unfortunately, shortly before our ceremony, Sammy fell ill and passed on January 30th. Sammy was the true definition of “brotherhood” he loved the fire service more than anyone I’ve ever met. Sammy was also receiving the Honorable Chiefs award for all he brought to our department.
Sammy, thank you for your 60 years of dedication to our department, your other family. You are a true inspiration to all and will be greatly missed. Rest easy brother, we’ll take it from here!
Frank Vasquez, Asst. Chief
