It is with heavy heart that we mourn the loss of our Chaplain Ray Wichlacz. Ray passed away after brief illness on August 11th 2013. Ray joined the South Line Fire Company in 1969. Ray was our Chaplain for over 20 years. Of the 66 names on the South Line Firefighter Memorial, Ray performed the eulogies on 50 of them. Ray didn’t stop at firefighters, as he also performed eulogies for all the departed family members. Ray was not only a friend, a mentor, but a caring individual who was always there in a time of need. We Will Miss Our Padre. Thanks to his loving wife Liz, and the rest of the Wichlacz family for sharing ray with us.
May he Rest in Peace and Never Be Forgotten
