I have been notified of the passing of Orange County firefighter Ron Castro. Ron passed away at 4am this morning due to complications from pancreatic and liver cancer. Memorial services are being planned by the family with the assistance of OC fire captain Steve Horner. For further information, contact Steve Horner or Mike Alba.
UPDATE: I have received the details for Ron Castro's services. They will be at 10am on Tuesday, December 6th at:
3800 S Fairview St.,
Santa Ana, CA 92704
Although it starts at 10am, all fire personnel have been asked to arrive by 9am. The goal is to have everyone seated by 9:30. The procession will arrive at 9:45 with the family. Their request is to have everyone already in the sanctuary upon arrival.
