Firefighter Brett Korves Memorial

Swansea Firefighter Brett Korves was involved in a car accident on Thursday, April 4th at 5:50AM on his way to work.  His car was hit on the passenger side by another car traveling at 100mph.  He did not survive the impact.  Brett leaves behind his wife Alex and 18-month old son Brock.  Brett also leaves behind a large extended family, his Swansea Fire Department family, and as a dirt-track race car driver a large racing family.  Brett truly was a great guy that will be missed by many!

All funds raised will benefit Brett's wife and son to help address their immediate needs and long-term funding for Brock's care and education.   

In Brett's memory, thank you for your support!!
