Dick was a fine man with integrity. He brought a lot to Anchorage Fire/EMS. He was a fine officer. It was a pleasure to serve with him. RIP Dick.
Lt.Col Wertz (Ret)
After working under your command at Anchorage Fire & EMS for many years I found you to always be caring, compassionate, and professional about your job. You spoke highly of your friends and family and of their achievements. As a leader you assisted all of us through thick and thin and managed to remain positive. The good lord has found another great man to carry on his deeds. Rest in peace my old friend. God Speed.
I am so happy that my wonderful nieces had him for a Grandfather. He was a great person, good father and a wonderful grandfather. My deepest sympathy goes out to Mike, Amy, the girls and rest of the family. He will be missed!
RIP Lt Colonel Wertz, it was an honor getting to serve with you. Prayers and thoughts go out to your family.
It was an honor to serve with Lt. Col. Dick Wertz at Anchorage, God's speed to you
