Early this morning, October 13th, Fire Chief Tom Levesque passed away after a brief hospital stay. It is with a heavy heart that I provide this announcement, since Chief Tom gave more of his life to the Richmond Fire Department, schools, and community than anyone could ever ask. The Richmond community is saddened by this loss, but his memory will bring great joy to all who knew him. The visiting hours will be at Gifford’s from 4pm to 8pm on Friday, October 16th.
On Saturday the 17th the family, friends and residents of Richmond VT will bid farewell to Chief Tom Levesque who passed away unexpectedly this week.
A Fireman’s procession will be held on Saturday at 10am leaving the Richmond Village for a final loop through the town Chief Lévesque spent 48 years as a Firefighter (18 as Chief) serving the Town of Richmond.
It will consist of Fire/Rescue/Police vehicles from multiple agency’s leaving from Bridge Street in Richmond through Jonesville back to The Richmond Fire Station for a final passing in review. It will then proceed to The Holy Rosary Church on Main Street in Richmond for funeral services at 11am.
