    Default Sad day in Winfield

    It is with great sorrow that I anounce the death of one of our trustees and retired 40 year firefighter Larry Atkinson.
    Larry suffered a probable CVA that left him on life support. He was removed from the machines and passed today, Saturday 29th.

    Larry served our department for over half of its existence, and even in death he was able to help. (he is an organ donor)

    He was truely a selfless public servant and will be deeply missed.

    I will post info on the memorial when I know it.

    I am a very good friend of his daughter. From what I know he was a very dedicated member of the department. My best wishes to TT and the family.

    Larry was a member of the Winfield FPD for 42 years. When he retired 3 years ago he was appointed to the board of trustees. He gave our department 45 years of his life. Larry will be greatly missed.

    If anyone is able to attend any of the services it would be greatly appreciated.

    Stay Safe!
