It is with great sadness that the department announces the passing of Firefighter Elmer Votra. Firefighter Votra passed away on 10/23/2019. Elmer joined the Canton Fire Department on October 3, 1963 and served faithfully for 56 years. He was a fixture around the fire station and was well respected by his fellow members, young and old. Arrangements are with the O'Leary Funeral Service. His obituary appears below.

Condolences to Elmer's family, friends, and his fellow firefighters. It was my privilege to have known Elmer for many years and to have served with him in the department. He was the most kind and gentle man I've known, one always willing to help and teach others. Rest in peace, Elmer.
