Dec 19th – Today we remember Blake Lawrence who passed away following a courageous battle with cancer. Blake was a firefighter and past officer with Citizens’ Fire Company of Mechanicsburg (Co. 27). He was also a 9-1-1 dispatcher for the Cumberland County Dept. of Public Safety. Blake was a loving husband and father. We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Blake’s family, his wife Rachael, his friends, and the members of Company 27.
Monroe Fire Company was fortunate to have served many, many times with Blake on the fireground. He was a respected member of the fire service and the community, but most importantly, he was a friend to all us. During the course of his illness he taught us all about courage. He faced his cancer head on and aggressively fought it. He never let it get him down and we should all be at peace knowing that his suffering is now over.
Your fight is over. Rest easy brother.
