It is with deep sadness that we share news of the death of WVRS Life Member Kenneth Lacayo on the morning of January 24, 2022.
Kenny joined the Rescue Squad in May of 2011 and steadily advanced through the ranks. He became a firefighter in 2012, a paramedic in 2014, and a founding member of the Honor Guard in 2017. Among his many awards he received the Rescue Squad’s award for paramedic of the year in 2016 and was recognized as a top ten responder in 2015 and 2016. He also received a unit citation in 2018 for his life saving actions in responding to a pedestrian struck by a car.
His exceptional skills as a firefighter and paramedic were matched by his bright smile and his unfailing good nature. He was dearly loved by his fellow WVRS volunteers and will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kenny’s family, his many friends, and his brothers and sisters in the Montgomery County Maryland – Fire & Rescue Service and the Baltimore City Fire Department.
