My first captain! He really took me under his wing and encouraged me to be my best. He was always up for training and taught me things you only learn from experience.
He had a calm to him that you knew everything was under control even if it didn't appear that way. He was well respected by the department, other emergency services and the community. He retired a year after I was stationed with him. He still checks in on me to make sure I'm doing alright and loving my job. My great mentor is John Mairs, Pickering Fire L1632
