The Gravois Fire Protection District has announced that retired Deputy Chief Ron Anselmo died on Friday evening.

He joined the district in 1989, and last year Anselmo was honored for his over 3 decades of service.

At the time a post on the district’s Facebook page said his “dedication to the district and the community was second to none.”

In a Saturday post the district said his passing has caused “indescribable sadness.”
