It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of David Simmons. For those of you who didn't have the pleasure of knowing him, he was a true joy to be around. He was dedicated to his profession, despite having to medically retire due to his illnesses. David was integral in the formation of NBFA, dating back to his initial diagnosis of Leukemia. NBFA will always be a part of David's legacy, and every firefighter assisted by the foundation will be in part due to David. I'm glad that I had the privilege of knowing you and the opportunity to work with you. Rest In Peace, brother, we will take it from here.
