Frank Ott, A Founding Father
June 8th, 2013 - A founding father of what we now know as Wintergreen Rescue Squad ended his battle with cancer today at his home in Nellysford. Frank Ott was a lifetime volunteer member of both the Wintergreen Rescue Squad and the Wintergreen Fire Department. He mentored countless volunteers, served as an advanced life support provider, and stepped up for virtually any task.
Frank filled the room with his energy, even when the room was big enough to hold a half-dozen fire trucks. He loved everything about Wintergreen and the greater Nelson County community. He was active with several non-profits and served on several boards and commissions.
Frank's family always came first, but we were always a close second. He left quite mark on our agencies and our hearts. He will be missed.
