Early Monday December 21st, Fire Captain Terrence Gee, passed away. He was surrounded by his immediate family in his home. In February of this year, Terrence was diagnosed with cancer. He leaves behind is wife Nancy of twenty-four years, son Samuel age twenty-two, and daughter Amanda age twenty, as well as, a great number of other family and friends.
Terry began his career in the fire service with Sacramento Fire Department in February 1985. He spent a significant portion of his career assigned to Station 57 where he worked with his dear friend, Captain Bob Kiehne. In December 2005, Terry promoted to the rank of Fire Captain and worked at a number of stations; however his most recent assignment prior to illness was Station 60.
In addition to his work with the Sacramento Fire Department, Captain Gee was an elected Member of the Board of Directors for the Florin Fire District. In that role he guided the District through the merger with the American River Fire District in 1997. "Terry Gee was a tireless advocate for both the District and the residents it served. Without his leadership and perseverance the merger between AmericanRiver and Florin Fire Districts would not have occurred" said Rick Martinez, retired Fire Chief for both Districts. Following that merger Captain Gee continued to support the regionalization of the fire service which led to the creation of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.
