(The following was posted on West Pierce Fire & Rescue’s Facebook page regarding the passing of former Lakewood Fire Chief Chester (Chet) Rolly)
Our past certainly shapes our future. Today we remember former Lakewood Fire Chief Chester (Chet) Rolly, as he passed away last week.
Chief Rolly was known as a visionary in the fire service and successfully passed the first maintenance & operations levy at Lakewood Fire in 1974, among other accomplishments. Remembering these successes make us realize how far we’ve come and who we are today as West Pierce Fire & Rescue. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rolly family during this difficult time.
