Sisters and Brothers,

It is with a heavy heart that our Association has lost another member to an occupational cancer LODD (Line of Duty Death). Paramedic Lieutenant Odell Minor started with the Milwaukee Fire Department back in 1985 and served for 24 1/2 before going on duty disability with cancer in October of 2009. On March 6th 2019, Odell Minor passed away peacefully at the age of 66.

We ask that you please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. For those of us that had the pleasure to work alongside Odell, remember the good times as we are the blessed ones to have had the opportunity to work with him. He was a kind and caring man with a great attitude about our profession and the community he served. His smile and laugher is one that is not easily forgotten.

Visitation will take place:

Krause Funeral Home

Saturday March 16th from 10-11am with the funeral service at 11:00am.
