In Memory of Chief Dennis K. West
Chief Dennis K. West passed away on April 18th, 2007 after a long battle with cancer. Dennis was Chief of LCFD # 1, a previous member of LCFD # 2, formerly a Wyoming Highway Patrolman, and a former US Marine. Chief West was very dedicated in the fire service, and loved his job, along with helping the community. If you ask anybody, they would say that he was a terrific person, and was full of knowledge. For those reasons, this web site is and always will be in memory of him. He will be missed by all.
