The City of Pinole Fire Department and the United Professional Firefighters of Contra Costa County Local 1230 are saddened to announce the line of duty death of Pinole Fire Captain Richard Voisey. Richard Voisey served the City of Pinole as a firefighter for 35 years, rising in the ranks from volunteer firefighter to Fire Captain.
Captain Richard Voisey, passed away surrounded by his family on March 4, 2015 at age 54, due to occupational brain cancer. Richard Voisey was a loving husband, father, son, grandfather and brother. He was a great firefighter, leader and citizen. We honor his memory and send our condolences to his wife, Nancy, his daughters Sasia and Sarah, his son, Joshua and granddaughter Autumn.
After leaving the Army and a brief stint in the Postal Service, Terry joined the fire department and saw many changes and adjustments to the fire service in the next 32 years that he served. Outside of his family there was nothing that Terry loved more than his San Francisco 49’ers. Though small in stature, Terry was large in spirit.

On behalf of all your brothers and sisters in Local 1230, we offer our condolences and support for the loss of Brother Willie West. Local 1230 has lost a member in “good standing” who has always been there for the fight, no matter what the issue was. He has succumbed to the “job” and lost his life to the silent but deadly enemy of occupational cancer. He was a great servant to the East Contra Costa County Fire District and has paid the ultimate price. Fire Engineer Willie West, has died in the “line of duty” and will be honored for that.
