jportal50 & DaveP, my thoughts are with you, and prayers are out.

jportal50, if you don't mind sharing, how old are you?

Many thanks all, will pass on thoughts to the family.
True to form, his wife is focusing her worry on the remaining injured men and their outcomes; there were four generations around the house yesterday; and the story-telling got started - their way of dealing, always has been.

Saw the scene today, massive.
And yes, he and his brother, having done this forever, would think nothing of gearing up first; due to it being fair week, they were still on shift until the 'young' guys came on a bit later. It's a wired-tight, squared-away dept for a small town, partly because of the college, and despite being almost entirely vol.

Good thoughts out to the EMTs, Lifeflight, and ER/surgery staffs taking care of the rest of the team.
