As we reflect back on 2016, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank and honour one of our local heroes, one who just happens to be our dad. August 2016, marked the end of an era: after 35 years of unfailing dedication and heroism, Herb Pearce, AKA Charlie 2, hung his Captain’s hat and retired from the Morinville Volunteer Fire Department. Standing proud at his side throughout his journey was our mom. His loving and supportive wife Vi, always there to offer comfort after the heart-wrenching calls, or to rejoice with over the victories.

In fact, it really wasn’t Thanksgiving if the tones didn’t go off five minutes into our family gathering. Such was life in our home. It didn’t matter the hour or holiday, if the tones went off, so did he. We can’t possibly express with words how proud and fortunate we are to call him Dad. […]
