It is with great sadness that we learned Tuesday, February 12, of the passing of Wayne Viegut. Wayne had battled cancer and other health issues for the last 9 years and finally succumbed to his ailments.
Wayne was an integral member of the Fire & Safety Services’ team from the mid-1990’s through the mid 2000’s as our sales manager before taking a job outside of the industry closer to his home in Pennsylvania. He came on board and helped keep the ship sailing on the proper course after Fire & Safety Services’ President at the time, William Russell, was going through his own battle with cancer. Wayne then helped current president, David Russell, make a smooth transition back into the business in 1999 upon his rejoining after five years doing practicing law.
Prior to joining Fire & Safety Services, Wayne was born in Appleton, Wisconsin and began his career working at Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton. He left Pierce to move to Pennsylvania to work with the Pierce dealer that was covering eastern Pennsylvania. From there, he joined Fire & Safety Services.
The entire Fire & Safety Services’ family extends its deepest sympathies to the Viegut family and has them in our thoughts and prayers. Services will be this Sunday. Please see the below link for details.
