The Lake Valley Fire Protection District is deeply saddened to announce the unexpected death of 34-year-old firefighter paramedic Brandon “Mitch” Underhill on Sept. 29.
Mitch joined the fire district as a paid professional on Sept. 27, 2005, and served the community with dedication and devotion for just over eight years until his untimely death.
Mitch is survived by his wife and two young children, his parents, and a sister and brother.
Donations to help out the family in these toughest of times can be made at any El Dorado Savings bank branch under the name of the “Underhill Family Fund”. A website has been set up where people may post comments about Mitch.
