It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Retired North York Platoon Chief Ronald Burbidge, passed away in peace April 20th 2020.
Lorne had a proud career with 35 years in the fire service. Lorne started in 1958 with the Township, Borough and then City of North York retiring in 1993 as a Platoon Chief. He was also with King City Fire Department for many years serving in all ranks including King City Fire Chief for several years. He was very well respected in the fire service and as a true leader would, he set a trail for others to walk along and guided his firefighters along the way.
A celebration of life will be planned later in the year. Arrangements entrusted to Marshall Funeral Home, Richmond Hill.
From the RTFFA our deepest condolences go out to the Burbidge family and friends.
