Russ Conley has been Midland Fire Department Chief for four years topping off a 26 year career as a firefighter, and today was his last day. You can get more details about him in the backgrounder at the Midland Reporter-Telegram.
It's safe to say he will be missed by just about everyone who dealt with him. With his calm demeanor, good looks and affable personality he made friends wherever he went.
He's sure to be a tremendous success at his retirement job, which rumor has it, will be selling real estate in the Brownwood, Texas, area. Move over Donald Trump.
