Deputy Chief/ Past Chief Richard A. Marshall
Rick was a founding member of PSAR in 1997 coming together with other folks in the SAR community to form a brand new team. Rick was always thinking of others before himself. He helped the team accomplish many first steps to allow the team to flourish as it has in the past 15 years. He will be remembered by all who worked with him.
