BC Obenchain needs your prayers

Comments: 2

Update: Chief Obenchain passed away this morning. I am working on a more in depth post, please let me know if you have anything to add.

Billy Obenchain, a retired Roanoke City Battalion Chief, is in need of your prayers. Today he was put on hospice care at his home. Chief has been battling cancer for many years and was forced to retire due to the illness. He has maintained a fairly active lifestyle thanks to his grandson Hunter all the while undergoing in-depth treatments for his disease.

Please pray for Billy and his family during this difficult time.

Chief’s son Jeremy is being flown in this evening to be with the family.

God Bless

    Chief Obenchain, his family, and his department family are in my prayers. After just loosing my grandmother to cancer, I know how hard this road is to travel. Keep God first, and he will take care of the rest. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Brothers and Sisters,

    Chief Obenchain was my first Batt. Chief when I came out of recruit school even though it was only for a few weeks before I was transfered to 6 he made a lasting impression on myself and my career. Chief’s family and my brothers and sisters in Roanoke will be in my families prayers.

    Be safe and God Bless
