It is with sadness that I report the passing of one of our County fire chiefs here in Delaware. Chief Mark Wix of the Farmington Fire Company (Kent County Station 47) was killed as a result of injuries received in a motor vehicle accident on 1/17/04.

Chief Wix joined the Farminton Fire Company in 1990 and had worked his way through the ranks,serving as a fire captain and assistant chief.

Chief Wix had taken office on January 8th 2004 the date of his 30th birthday. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Wix family and to our brothers and sisters of the Farmington Fire Company.

"Rest in peace Chief"
