For those in the the Southeast:

On June 28, 2007 at approximately 5:30 PM CST, the NAFECO family experienced a tragic loss. Gary John Sherrill, 27, was involved in a fatal accident while driving a fire apparatus on Interstate 10 near Tallahassee, Florida. He is survived by his mother, Sherry Griffin of Birmingham, and his father, Gary Ward Sherrill of Decatur.

Gary was employed by NAFECO for over 10 years. He was a valued employee who was well respected by both the NAFECO family and members of the Fire Service community. His friendship, loyalty and service will be greaty missed by many.

It is our prayer that God will bring comfort and peace to Gary's family and friends. With God's grace, the NAFECO family will walk through this difficult time with love and support for one another. We ask for your continued prayers and thoughts for all who are grieving the loss of this outstanding young man.
