The Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD) has announced that firefighter Dan Patterson has passed away. Patterson suffered a cardiac arrest on July 21, 2022, after going off shift, according to SVFD. "It is with heartfelt sadness that I share the news of Dan's passing," said SVFD Fire Chief, Frank Soto Jr. in an email to all SVFD personnel. "Know that his personal family and his Firefighter Family were with him during his passing. Dan was a big presence for many of us—even for me in my short time here. I have watched the shares of "remember to be kind to each other like Dan, hug each other like Dan, and tell each other you love them... like Dan" and hope in the days to come, and as time passes, this sentiment remains within us all. We need it every day."
