Virginia Community Mourns Loss of Fire Chief – In The Line Of Duty:

“We all looked to Max as a father figure. He was always willing to help out,” the assistant chief said. “We’re all just devastated by the loss.”

Smith said people looked up to Willard because of his attitude and his genuine concern for the community.

On Tuesday afternoon, a man who answered the phone at the fire house said he just stopped by to see what he could do, and tidy up. He said he wasn’t a member, but just wanted to help.

On Friday, Willard’s accounting office will be closed to allow his co-workers to attend his funeral, set for 11 a.m. at Buchanan Funeral Chapel in Keen Mountain.

Visitation will be held from 6-9 p.m. Thursday.

So there it is boys, let me know if you want to take a trip down there to be with our Fallen Brother. I will be calling in tomorrow to make sure it is ok if we all show up. Until then page me or call me or email me at to let me know if you wanna go. I am able to go to the Funeral on Friday, although I am working on Thursday. You guys let me know and we will head on down South to bury our Fallen Brother.
