I am shocked, devastated and at a loss for words by the recent passing of Giff La Rose. Giff was the former Fire Chief of Hornby Island.
He was a brother in arms and a friend. We spent many hours together planning and discussing the direction of the fire service on Denman and Hornby Island. Giff was always generous with his time. He was a wealth of information. I learnt a lot from him. I will miss him.
The members of Denman Island Fire Rescue send their condolences to the family, members of Hornby Island Fire Rescue and the residents of Hornby Island.
