Faces and Places April 30

Chief Steve Rossi with the Angwin Volunteer Fire Department was escorted from his home in Pope Valley to Treadway and Wigger Funeral Chapel in Napa by the AVFD, Pope Valley Volunteer Fire Department, the California Highway Patrol, CALFire and family members following his passing. Chief Rossi joined the Pope Valley Volunteer Fire Department in 1993 and rose through the ranks to ultimately become Chief of the department. In 2011, he transitioned to the Angwin Volunteer Fire Department where he was assigned to Water Tender 18 which fast became “his rig.” In his time with AVFD, he responded on no other rig but WT18. In 2016, after 23 years of service, Chief Rossi retired.
