    Default In Memory of Michael Salyer, Oil Springs VFD

    Asst. Chief Michael "Caveman" Salyer of Oil Springs (KY) Fire & Rescue passed away early this morning after a very long and very brave battle with scleroderma. Caveman was at UK Hospital waiting on a double lung transplant, which represented his best hope for survival.

    He is survived by his wife, Tracy, son Tristan and daughter Lauryn. Arrangements are pending.

    I have known Caveman for many years and through mutual aid have fought many fires alongside him. He was a dedicated husband, dad, and firefighter, and a rock solid man. His is a great loss to his family, department, and community.

    Rest in peace, old buddy.
