The Lt. Herb Milnes fund will help Herb's family deal with his funeral expenses and other associated costs of his untimely passing.
On Saturday September 20th 2014 Lt. Herb Milnes unexpectedly passed away while out of state for a family event. This fund will help Herbs family not only deal with the funeral expenses but also the associated costs of his untimely passing. Herb served his community with pride for 28 years as a sworn member of the Northlake Fire Protection District . Herb was also a gifted dispatcher and spent many of his off days working the desk at Norcomm public safety. Herb always put others first and was a great mentor to all of the members of our department. Herbie had a passion for the fire service and was often considered to be the calm in the storm on hectic scenes. His witty humor, one liners, and original "size- ups" will be missed. Herb is survived by his wife Carol, son Sean, daughter Colleen, and two Grandchildren.
