President Tom Herman regrets to announce that ODHFS Central region member Jim Hanifer has passed away. Jim had been a member of ODHFS since 2012 and could be seen each July 4th Brandermill parade riding with one of us through the parade. Jim also attended our Farmville Musters and was hopeful he could make one more.
Jim was an insurance loss prevention specialist but also served as a volunteer firefighter for many years before re-locating to Richmond. The fire service was always in his blood.
Jim was a dear friend and will surely will be missed by all that knew him.
His last request to me, which he made a couple years ago, was to make sure there was at least one fire truck in his funeral procession. The answer to that goes without saying!
We will send out details of arrangements as soon as they are available.
