Doug Groesbeck Death, Obituary – It is with heavy hearts that we at the Williams Fire Department must once again fly our flag at half-staff in memory of our beloved Exempt Assistant Chief Doug Groesbeck, who passed away suddenly the previous week. The flag will be flown at half-staff in honor of Doug Groesbeck for as long as we all shall live.
This is done in honor of Doug Groesbeck, who worked at the Williams Fire Department for many years and held the position of assistant chief there. For as long as any of us are still alive, the flag shall be flown at a height of half-staff in honor of Doug Groesbeck. This gesture will continue for as long as we are all here. Doug was able to help those who were struggling throughout his whole tenure as a very dedicated volunteer firefighter in his community, which spanned a total of 22 years.
On Friday, January 6, commencing at 11 am, there will be a memorial ceremony held at the Williams Fire Department, and immediately following the service, there will be lunch. Both events will take place at the Williams Fire Department. The Williams Fire Department will serve as the venue for each of these activities. My most sincere thoughts and prayers are with His Family, the Williams Fire Department, and all of those who had the good fortune to have known him.
He will be much missed. Everyone will be grieving his passing in their own unique ways. I would like to take advantage of this chance to thank you, Chief, for the service that you have offered. Sincere thanks for the dedicated service you’ve offered over the years, and please accept my condolences on behalf of the department as well as your family during this challenging time.
