An icon gone from us……………….

Roy B. “Byron” Dickinson passed away at his home on Lake Wenatchee on January 29th. Byron was born on the north shore of Lake Wenatchee and the entire Dickinson family has been an integral part of the history and business community of this area for these many years. Byron served his community and his nation well as a military officer and an always-involved citizen.  A founder of the present Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue, he bought the first fire engine in the area to protect his own property. He served as a commissioner of the fire district from it’s founding to the recent past.  His knowledge of  the history of the area was a resource that has  served us all well.  He was a giant among men in this area;  his legacy will endure and his absence will be felt for a very long time.
