The Lake Mills community is remembering a fallen hero, Capt. Chris Truman of the Lake Mills Fire Department. "I truly believe the best way to honor Capt. Truman is by being a good person and helping out those around you. Pay it forward," said Police Chief Mick Selck. "By helping out your friends and people you don't know, you're honoring his memory." During an unforgettable service Sunday at Lake Mills High School, Truman's colleagues in the fire department spoke of his infectious laugh, his "contagious" passion for the fire service and his willingness to help anyone who needed it. "He was a compassionate, brave and committed public servant," said acting Lake Mills Fire Chief Todd Yandre. Andy Brinkmann, a firefighter and operator from Lake Mills, said, "He was gone too soon."
