Owego Fire Department mourns the loss of former chief

first_img“A real leader, they really don’t make guys like Don Warner anymore. A chip off that generation’s block,” said Owego Fire Department member and historian Patrick Gavin. Warner joined the department after graduating from Owego Free Academy and over the years he left his mark. Gavin says his father and grandfather worked side-by-side Warner. Warner was fire chief from 1984 to 1985 and four years prior, he was going through the ranks as assistant chief. It’s a loss that goes even deeper than the department. “I often heard him referred to as a voice of reason and somebody that department members really respected,” said Gavin. “It’s a challenge because you look back to those folks to guide you and give you the direction needed, especially during these difficult times of COVID. Making sure everything is prepared and you’re doing your job right to serve your community,” said Morris. Gavin remembers hearing stories of two block fires in the 80’s that Warner played a major role in. Warner won Owego firefighter of the year in 1983. “Anybody who commits six years of their life as a chief officer with that huge responsibility and all of the work involved, definitely a servant of the community,” said Gavin. “Just gave his life and devotion to the Village of Owego and the community,” said Morris. “Everything I’ve heard was he was a laid-back, go-getter, making sure the job was done and done right,” said current Owego fire chief Jim Morris. “Those fires were very intense and if they weren’t tackled by the members of the Owego Fire Department, the whole village could have burnt down,” said Gavin. (OWEGO) — The Owego Fire Department is mourning the loss of a lifetime member, Don Warner. Not only a standout firefighter but a standout guy, making for a tremendous loss for Owego Fire. He also recalled hearing about a silo fire where Warner had the wits to collaborate with the Cornell Cooperative Extension. Warner passed on May 31 at 76 years old.last_img read more

Mason City man facing vehicular homicide charges wants trial moved

first_imgMASON CITY — A Mason City man facing vehicular homicide charges after a fatal motorcycle crash last fall wants his trial moved out of Cerro Gordo County.41-year-old Brandon Kellar was originally charged in October with vehicular homicide while operating under the influence in connection with the September 28th accident at the intersection of 15th and South Pennsylvania in Mason City. 36-year-old Shawn True was a passenger on the motorcycle that collided with another vehicle and died from injuries sustained in the crash.Mason City police say the investigation determined that Kellar was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash with a blood alcohol content of greater than the legal limit of .08. A second charge of vehicular homicide by reckless driving was filed against Kellar on April 18th.Kellar’s trial currently is scheduled to start on August 27th in Cerro Gordo County District Court, but online court records show that Kellar’s attorney last week filed a motion for a change of venue. The records do not indicate that a hearing has been scheduled to consider the change of venue motion. Vehicular homicide by OWI is a Class B felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison. Vehicular homicide by reckless driving is a Class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.last_img read more
