Line-Of-Duty-Death (LODD) – Notice


It is with great sadness that the Gallitzin Fire Company, No.1 announces the line-of-duty death of Fire Chief Christopher “Dauber” Cox on August 12, 2022 from occupational cancer.
Chief Cox joined the fire service in 1993 and served the Gallitzin Fire Company and the citizens of our communities for over 29 years.
Chief Cox was a valued friend and esteemed member of the department. There is no doubt Chief Cox touched many lives throughout his career and will be remembered as a kind, caring, fun loving and compassionate person. He was an exceptional leader, mentor, and friend and will be greatly missed.
The Gallitzin Fire Company, No.1, extend our deepest condolences to Chief Cox’s family – wife Jenn, daughters Avery and Serenity, parents Dick and Joann, his sister Becky, all of his family and friends and anyone whose life he touched.
