FROM THE OFFICE OF THE FIRE CHIEF
It is with great sadness today that we announce the passing of Assistant Chief Don Faulkner at the age of 84. Assistant Chief Faulkner has been a highly dedicated member of the Peoria Heights Fire Department for over 63 years when he originally started as a firefighter, and during that time has shown an amazing amount of pride and dedication serving the citizens of the village. He also has a great amount of respect amongst those within the fire service family as well, always being willing to sit down and talk with newer firefighters and pass on his vast amount of knowledge and advice. The level of knowledge and dedication that this man has shown is something that can never be replaced, and it was an immense honor for all of us to be able to spend the time we had with him and to serve alongside of him.
Visitation and funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as information is finalized. We’d ask that you and your families keep Assistant Chief Faulkner’s family in your thoughts as we all navigate this time.
Rest easy Chief, we have it from here.
