It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of retired SFD firefighter Lloyd Benson. He passed today, November 24, 2019, in his sleep at the age of 89. Lloyd was a regular visitor at SFD Training and his visits will be missed.

No information is available about his service at this time, but we will pass on information about his memorial as soon as we get it.

Please keep his family, friends, and SFD family in your thoughts during this difficult time.
