VIFR would like to extend our sincere sympathy on the passing of Milton Kranjcevich, a former volunteer Firefighter and Captain with Vashon Island Fire & Rescue for fifty years.

Milton applied as a volunteer in January of 1951. He rose through the ranks, eventually becoming a Captain of the Dockton station in the 1960’s – a position he held for over 30 years. In 1968, his wife Virginia also applied to be a firefighter – one of the first four female members of the District. During his time with VIFR, Milt received commendations for his firefighting skills, his successful work on a patient during a CPR call and his and Virginia’s help during annual Disaster drills. He retired in 2001.

Virginia applied to be a firefighter in 1968 and served as a Lieutenant until 1995, when she passed away unexpectedly. Virginia was an Accident Prevention officer, trained in Emergency Vehicle Accident Prevention, as a firefighter and a First Responder. Together she and Milt provided 77 years of volunteer service. Their son, Brett, has volunteered here for 35 years – and other members of his family have as well.

Even after he left the District, Milt continued for decades to cook the dinner for the annual awards banquet for employees and volunteers. Because of this, in 2001 the cookbook committee, asked if they could take Milt’s picture for the dedicatory page in a fundraising cookbook which has helped to build the 9/11 Memorial in front of the main fire station. Milt showed up with the BBQ apron his wife made him. As you know, the memorial is in the final stages of completion.

Vashon Island Fire & Rescue members expresses sympathy to the Kranjcevich family and friends. Gone is the gentle patriarch of a loving family whose steadfast devotion has been the mainstay of the tradition of fire service on Vashon Island.
