Family, friends and firefighters will pay tribute to the late Dave Crothers this evening at the Inter-Township Fire Department on 12th Street West in Owen Sound.
Crothers, who began his working career as an electrician, eventually followed a family legacy in fire fighting.
He passed away Sunday after a brief battle with cancer at age 72.
First as a volunteer firefighter at Wingham, Crothers moved to Owen Sound working first with the Inter-Township Department and then joining the City Fire Department in 1974.
Crothers later re-joined the Inter-Township Department for a decade beginning in 2001.
The tribute to Dave Crothers begins tonight at 6 pm at the Inter-Township Fire Department, and then will shift to Branch 6 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Owen Sound.
