Al LeQuesne’s funeral service is scheduled for this Saturday. A former Langford fire chief and local hero, LeQuesne was a firefighter for much of his life, joining the department in 1952 when he was just 16, and becoming chief in 1967.
Son Dave LeQuesne said Al was “legendary” both for his skill as a firefighter, and for the lasting impact his leadership had on the department.
LeQuesne passed away on March 1 at the age of 86.
His funeral service is being held on April 9 at the Colwood Pentecostal Church on Sooke Road at 1:30 p.m. His son said those who knew Al are welcome to attend.
