- Updated with Celebration of Life Service Information - 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Fire Captain Tim Strack, a respected member of the City of Riverside Fire Department, the President of Riverside City Firefighter’s Association Local 1067, and a prominent fixture of our great city.

Captain Strack served the community with honor and distinction for 28 years and was a key figure in the department's efforts to keep our community safe. He was known for his courage, dedication, and commitment to his fellow firefighters and the people he served.

Captain Strack was an integral part of the Local Firefighters Union, where he served as President since 2002. During his tenure, he worked tirelessly to improve the working conditions of the firefighters here in Riverside, in California, and throughout our nation.

Together, Tim and his beloved wife Wendy have made long-lasting impacts in the community.  Quintessential public servants, they have selflessly dedicated themselves to Riverside wholeheartedly. Tim leaves behind his wife and three children, Madeline, Isabella, and Justin.

The passing of Captain Strack is a tremendous loss to the City of Riverside, the Local Firefighters Union, and the community as a whole. His contributions will be remembered and celebrated for years to come. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time. We ask that everyone respect the family's privacy as they grieve their loss.

A Celebration of Life service will be held to honor Captain Strack's life and legacy. 



All are welcomed to attend Captain Strack’s Celebration of Life.
