    It is with deep sadness we must advise you of the passing of MFF William D. “Duke” Lee, Jr. Duke passed away this morning while resting comfortably at home. His death is a line of duty death and we are working with his family on arrangements. MFF Tim Trail and a VBFD Honor Guard liaison are with the family now and details will be shared as soon as they are passed on to us. Please keep Duke’s family in your thought and prayers during this difficult time.

    Respectfully,

    Deputy Chief Donna Brehm
    Virginia Beach Fire Department

    Just a few months prior, this past April. MFF Lee and MFF Barber. MFF Barber is also suffering from duty inflicted cancer. MFF Lee succumbed to cancer.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
