Service For Intertownship Deputy Fire Chief

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

A celebration of life will be held Friday for retired Deputy Fire Chief Dave Crothers.

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.
