South Hill Town Council on Monday night honored Fire Chief Rosser Wells for his 47 years of service to the South Hill Volunteer Fire Department, including 16 years in the top leadership position.

Wells retired as fire chief last month but said he plans to continue serving for another five months until he completes 48 years of service. His retirement is slated for January 2021.

A resolution presented to Chief Wells by Mayor Dean Marion reads, “the Council of the Town of South Hill extends gracious thanks and appreciation to Charles Rosser Wells for 47 years of tireless, selfless and dedicated volunteer service and leadership to our community.”

Wells’ family, along with the widow of Jimmy Crowder, who Wells credits with encouraging him to take on the role of fire chief, were present as he received the Council resolution of thanks and appreciation.
