Flags To Be Flown At Half-Staff For Pardeeville Firefighter Who Died Of COVID

(Pardeeville) Governor Tony Evers has ordered the flags of the United States and the state of Wisconsin to be flown at half-staff Saturday in honor of a Pardeeville firefighter who passed due to COVID. Brandon Romo died on November 6th after contracting the virus in the line of duty. The 32-year-old had served the Pardeeville community as a volunteer firefighter for three years. Evers says by all accounts Romo was incredibly loved by those who knew him. He says both he and his wife extend their deepest condolences to Romo’s family, the Pardeeville Fire Department, and the entire Pardeeville community. The Governor adds that with the holiday season upon us, they are thinking of his family, friends, and loved ones as they grieve his loss. A celebration of life will be held from Romo Saturday. Evers already ordered flags to be lowered Saturday as a mark of respect for the victims of the Waukesha Christmas Parade tragedy.
