    Exclamation Death of a dispatch and buff legend

    It is with great sadness that the leadership of the Fairfax County Professional Fire Fighters & Paramedics informs you of the death of Retired Local 2068 brother Wesley Gerald. Brother Gerald passed away Sunday morning after a long, but bravely fought, illness.

    Wes was a dedicated buff and excellent photographer even before he could drive. He used to con his mother into driving him to fires in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County, VA just so that he could take pictures.

    Wes was also a dispatcher and dispatch supervisor at the Fairfax County Public Safety Communications Center and the webmaster of www.ffxfire.com before he became too sick to do either.

    Wes is memorialized here:
