Last Alarm – Quartermaster Capt. Marcy Stratton and Firefighter Stuart Bryan

It’s been a difficult week for the Toronto Fire Services family. Within the span of two days, the service lost sister Marcy Stratton and brother Stuart Bryan. Our crew were honoured to serve at Stratton’s funeral on Sunday. Members of our crew also attended Bryan’s funeral today, where our sister unit Box 12 served.

Marcy Stratton’s obituary reads as follows:

It is with utter devastation and sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful sister and friend Marcy on Tuesday, April 25, 2017. Beloved sister to Laura Lee (Mark Humphrey) and Brett (Brandi), half sister to Debbie Lunan (Larry), aunt to Michael, Jake, Krista and Kara. Dearest friend to Janice, Nicole, Tanya and countless others. Pre-deceased by her father Ron Stratton and mother Jackie Vardy. She touched many lives and hearts during her 16 years with Toronto Fire.

Marcy loved cooking for people, traveling and spending time at the cottage. Her brilliant smile and big, kind heart was well known and she was loved by many. She will be a missing piece of so many people’s lives. We LOVE you so much Marcy!!
