My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Chenkovich's family. My father (David Boals) was the assistant fire chief for Hillsborough Fire Department back in 1994 and passed away from lung cancer that had spraid to his brain before it was detected. He passed away at the young age of 53. He was my hero and I have his badges and fire helmets proudly displayed in my home. My dad was my hero, and He loved his career. I am convinced that God takes those who are the most special at an early age because there is a much higher purpose for them. God bless all of our firefighters as they put their life on the line everyday for us. What people don't realize are all of the hazardous environments our firefighters are exposed to, aside from the danger of fighting a fire: breathing in hazardous fumes from chemical fires, smoke inhalation, asbestos found in old fire departments, etc. Take a moment to stop and thank them for what they do. Because they are incredible people with even more incredible stories.
Paul's dedication to saving people's lives will live through his spirit and in your hearts for years to come. I am so sorry for your loss.
