Passing of Roland Dechaine

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of retired fire captain Roland Dechaine.

The following is from retired Deputy Chief Raymond P. Melendrez.

“I have been asked by the family of retired fire captain Roland Dechaine to issue notification of his passing.  Roland has been fighting cancer for some time.  We will always remember him as a great warrior on the fire ground and an unassuming leader in the fire house.  A great friend and colleague to many of us.  Please keep Roland’s family in your thoughts as they process this great loss.  A celebration of life will be scheduled for family and close friends at a later date.”
