In Memory

During 2013 we lost two of our Brothers, Kenny Edwards Jr. and Roger Winn.

Kenny was an employee of Rutherford County Rescue for the last 3 years. Kenny was also a Captain at Ellenboro Fire Department for the last 25 years.  Kenny was also employed fulltime as Forman with Asplundh Tree Expert Co. Kenny died on February 27, 2013 from injuries that he sustained after being hit by a tree in a wooded area in Valdese..

On March 23, 2013 we lost Chief Roger Winn who was a member of Rutherford Co. Rescue for over 30 years. Chief Winn died from complications due to open heart surgery.

Kenny Jr. and Roger will live on in our memories and are deeply missed by all of us. Rest in peace our brothers.
