It is with deep regret the Officers of the Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Co.1 announce the passing of Past Lieutenant Christopher “Opie” Skurat at the age of 38. Opie passed away early this morning after bravely battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma since the summer of 2017. He is survived by his wife Carla, his two sons Jake & Ryan, his mother Donna, and sisters Gretchen and Karen.

Please keep the Skurat family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
