Firefighters in Burlington are remembering a colleague who died unexpectedly on Friday.
The body of David Gale was found on Law Island in Colchester. He was there hunting and died of an apparent heart attack. Gale had been a firefighter in Burlington since 1988 and had reached the rank of Captain. Those who knew him say his dedication to public service will live on forever.
"He played a significant role in the department. David was an incredibly well liked member of the department, did an excellent job -- very well respected," said Burlington Fire Chief Seth Lasker.
Funeral services for Gale will be held this Wednesday. The Burlington Fire Department Captain was 49.
