Former Fairview Fire Chief Robert Mauro laid to rest
Family, friends and fellow firefighters came out to the Grace Memorial Chapel Wednesday to say goodbye to former Fairview Fire Chief Robert Mauro.
He passed away on Sunday at the age of 76.
Mauro served in the department for 45 years and rose to the rank of fire chief before retiring.

Mauro is survived by his wife and two children.
