On November 18th, 2007 Assistant Chief Randy Mantle passed away after battling leukemia. For over 20 years, the assistant fire chief for the Logan- Rogersville Fire Protection District has put his heart and soul in to protecting the lives and property of the people who live in his district. Randy also worked as an emergency medical technician at St. Johns Hospitals.  The past seven years Randy was the assistant chief of operations, working Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., providing vehicle and station maintenance along with fire inspections on local businesses. He helped the district keep up with new equipment and helped plan some of the new stations that have been built during his tenure. The Mantle's have three children, Cody, Caleb and Nicki. Hundreds gathered in the Logan-Rogersville High School auditorium, the L-R family filling one side, emergency personnel from other agencies filling the other, with the center section densely populated with friends, family and other lives touched by the 21-year veteran of the Logan-Rogersville Fire Protection District. Representatives from at least 45 fire departments and emergency services formed a procession more than a mile long following the fire truck that carried the casket of Assistant Chief. The district estimated Randy responded to over 10,000 calls over his career. A memorial basketball game was held at the Logan-Rogersville High School.  Logan-Rogersville firefighters formed one team and friends, high school teachers, college basketball players formed the other team.
