|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “first of all, my sympathy, thoughts, prayers and encouragement to Dennis’s wife Krystyna, son Springfield Fire Department (SFD) Lt. Jim, daughter Jessica, family and friends. I was very sorry to hear about Dennis’s passing. He was very dedicated to our SFD and did a tremendous job as it’s Public Information Officer (PIO), 24/7. He played an important role in getting out information to our public during fire situations and especially during the natural (tornado) and man-made (gas explosion) disasters we faced. Always professional and to the point, he also brought a dry sense of humor too, which during hectic times, is appreciated. Firefighter/PIO Leger wore his gear and helmet both bravely and with pride. May God rest your soul Dennis.”
