It is with sadness that I report the passing of Chief Mark Wix of the Farmington Fire Company (Kent County Station 47). Chief Wix died of injuries he received from an auto accident on 01/17/04. Chief Wix joined the Farmington Fire Company in 1990 and had held postions such as captain and assitant chief and had just achieved the office of Chief on his 30th birthday 1/8/04.

At this time funeral arrangements are being worked on. The officers and members of the Citizens' Hose Company No 1 Inc of Smyrna (Station 44) extend our deepest sympathies to the Wix Family and our brothers and sisters of the Farmington Fire Company. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
