A Chance to Recognize an Outstanding Firefighter and Gentlemen


Capt William Caviness From Greensboro North Carolina collapsed and passed away yesterday from an apparent heart attack while participating in the Chicago Marathon. Capt. Caviness was running to raise money for the IAFF Burncamp and the other efforts which the IAFF extends in order to provide opportunities to burn victims. The last time I checked this link below is still active where you can see a photo of Will running and make a contribution. What a fitting opportunity to be able to recognize this wonderful man and express your sorrow and grief at his passing. There is little one can say when you read the comments that were posted by his family and friends prior to his passing on this page it is clear the Capt. was a man of integrity and outstanding character. May he rest in peace and may God grant comfort and support to his wonderful family and friends.
