BUCKEYE, Ariz. — Engineer Brian Miiller died after a monthlong battle with COVID-19, the Buckeye Valley Fire District posted on Facebook Monday.

The district said that Miiiller was exposed through work.

He began serving with the district in 2007.

Miiller is survived by his wife and two children.

“He brought wisdom and a bright light to BVFD. He encouraged fitness and teamwork through impromptu games of frisbee, football, or dodgeball at the fire station. After a day of dominating at sports, he would continue his winning streak at the dinner table, crushing any eating competitions. He will be greatly missed for the joy and positivity he always had,” the department said in its post.
