Passing of Former Lakeside Division Chief Norman Lepker

The entire Lakeside community lost a remarkable public servant on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Norman Lepker, who served with the Lakeside Fire Protection District from 1965 to 1988, passed away while in Colorado assisting flood victims. Division Chief Lepker was instrumental in launching the voter-approved Heartland Ambulance District, bringing the county's first paramedic service to Lakeside, Santee, and Bostonia. A true pioneer of Emergency Medical Services, the community has Chief Lepker to thank for setting the high standard of quality emergency services they enjoy today.

The district and its entire staff would like to offer their condolences to Chief Lepker's family. Services will be held at the Timberline Church (address below) on October 24, 2013, at noon.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to fire and flood victims in Colorado. Checks should be made out to the charity "Serve 6.8" and sent to:

Timberline Church
2908 S. Timberline Rd.
Fort Collins, CO 80525
