    Unhappy Lt. Dale Schwitalla, St. Cloud Fire

    St. Cloud firefighter killed in Michigan traffic accident

    (St. Ignace, Michigan-AP) -- A 20-year veteran of the St. Cloud
    Fire Department is dead after a traffic crash in Michigan.
    Forty-seven-year-old Dale Schwitalla of St. Cloud was a
    lieutenant in the fire department.
    The State Patrol says the firefighter was riding a motorcycle
    that collided with a minivan Thursday on U-S Highway Two in the
    Upper Peninsula.
    Authorities say the minivan driver was at fault. Neither alcohol
    nor speed were factors in the crash.
    Schwitalla is the second active St. Cloud firefighter to die in
    the last eight months.
    Volunteer firefighter Don Billig was killed October 27th when a
    pickup plowed into him while he responding to a call.
    Schwitalla worked for the city's full-time department. He is
    survived by his wife and three children.

    Default Tributes to Dale Vincent Schwitalla

    I would like to invite you to visit the Motorcycles Forum where "Vinnie", as we called him, was a loved member.
    There are many tributes to Vinnie and we have organized a memorial
    patch to wear on our jackets.
    Vinnie was the most loved forum member and he had his own corner.
    Strangely his final thread was entitled "Blissfully Free".
    I hope you can find the Forum on this link:


    Best wishes...

    Louise, Australia ("Illawarrian").
