In April 2022, Israel Burch was diagnosed with Melanoma Cancer. He started treatment on May 5th and worked hard to stay positive and upbeat, knocking down all the obstacles that were thrown his way. Unfortunately, we lost Israel on July 19th. Sheri, and the kids, are working hard to navigate this journey and make sure things are taken care of. Israel has been a volunteer & career firefighter his entire life, and Sheri has been there in support the entire way. While the Burch family would offer to help anyone in need, they would never ask for help!
"Chief Israel Burch put the needs of others before his own until his last breath. Chief you will be missed but your legacy and teachings will live on far into the future. We will take it from here!" -NIHFD
