Lance Caven, a firefighter in Langford for 30 years and assistant fire chief since 2017, has died following a “valiant battle with cancer.”

The city announced Caven’s death on Monday.

Flags have been lowered to half-mast around the region in Caven’s honour.

Caven joined Langford’s fire service as a volunteer in 1991, stepping into a career position in 2002 and becoming assistant chief six years ago.

“He dedicated his life to preventing fires, and saving lives and will always be remembered for his love and passion for firefighting and fire prevention,” the city said in a statement. “He will be greatly missed, and his legacy will remain in our hearts forever.”
