Retired Wilkes-Barre Assistant Fire Chief Norm Davis dead

WILKES-BARRE - Retired city assistant fire chief Norm Davis died overnight inside his house on Kirkendall Avenue in South Wilkes-Barre.

Davis retired from the fire department in February after 36 years of service. He was a candidate for city council District A in the primary election, receiving 27 percent of the vote.

"Today is a sad day for the City of Wilkes-Barre as the community has lost retired Wilkes-Barre Assistant Fire Chief Norm Davis. He dedicated his life and 36-year career to serve the people of Wilkes-Barre and even in retirement, his commitment to improve this city and the lives of the people could not be questioned," Mayor Thomas Leighton said in a statement. "My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends but he will not be forgotten. His memory will live-on in the fire department that he served and the people that he touched."

His retirement left a hole in our dept.
His passing left a hole in our souls.
The Marine Corp motto is 'Semper Fidelis' ("always faithful" in Latin) for the dedication and loyalty that individual Marines have for "Corps and Country", even after leaving service. Marines frequently shorten the motto to "Semper Fi".

Semper Fi, Norm.
