Easy shifts and quiet nights, Dave. You're awesome buddy!

Battalion Chief David Campos 

The older I get, the more often we have to go through this. I worked with Dave at old 6's, he was the engineer, I was the firefighter. We worked for Rick Kosar (he passed 5-6 years ago) and though the house was old, cramped and sort of run-down, we all got on well enough. Part of that was because Dave was a really, nice guy.

I was never assigned to work for Dave after he made Captain or Chief, but we did work together on several major incidents. We retired about the same time and though he was a bit older than me, I still can't believe he's gone. He was a true family guy, I know his family must be devastated. 

Well, shit.
