ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Lt. Brett Boss, a longtime Albert Lea firefighter, died Saturday after fighting cancer off and on for about a decade, KTTC reported.
Boss worked with the Firefighter Cancer Support Network to raise awareness of firefighters’ cancer battles and risks.
“Brett was a huge advocate for firefighters around the state,” said Capt. Caleb Feine. “Especially here in south east Minnesota. Aside from that, he was a parent, a husband. He had a family. He was an all around great guy.”
