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.

He is also known for his work in politics, championing legislation mandating fire alarms with strobe lights in hotels, allowing those with hearing impairments to know to evacuate.

Mauro is survived by his wife and two children.
