A long time public servant is laid to rest today. Funeral services took place this morning at St. Patrick’s for the former Chief of the West Lake Volunteer Fire Department, Robert Vitron.
Besides holding about every position possible at West Lake as a volunteer, Vitron was also instrumental in the formation of Millcreek Paramedic Service. He was a retired Police Officer from Presque Isle State Park, where he spent 30 years on the job.
Vitron was honored and remembered by firefighters and departments from across the region today as he was laid to rest at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
