Funeral arrangements are pending.
Furthermore, we regret to pass on that Assistant Chief Charles “Chuck” Scottini (Laramie County, Wyoming) passed away peacefully with his family by his side this morning, April 24, 2021 after a long 6-month battle with Covid-19. Chuck contracted Covid while on a wildland fire assignment in Colorado and was quickly moved to University of Utah hospital where he stayed for 6 long months trying to recover.
