The Turlock Fire Department is deeply saddened by the recent passing of retired Reserve Captain Willie Hildebrand. Captain Hildebrand was a legend in Turlock Fire Department history and worked as a reserve from 1966 - 2009 serving the city of Turlock for 43 years. Even after his years as a reserve he would stop by the station to have a cup of coffee and talk to the guys. Captain Hildebrand will be deeply missed.
