Visitation for veteran Woodward Fire Chief Ken Cavanaugh will be Friday, Nov. 5 from 4-8 p.m. at the Bouton Community Building and Fire Station. Funeral services will be Saturday, Nov. 6 at 10 a.m. in the Woodward-Granger High School Auditorium. Internment will be at the Woodward Cemetery, with fire and law enforcement procession. A luncheon will be served at the Woodward Fire Department following the service.
Cavanaugh suffered an off-duty medical incident Oct. 18 while driving a bus for the Woodward-Granger Community School District. He was able to drive the bus to a safe location so as not to endanger any of the school children on board.
“Chief Cavanaugh saved the lives of others while fighting for his own. This is a true hero, and he will be remembered for that final act,” said Louis Loon of the Central Iowa Police and Fire Monitoring.
