(BLACKFOOT) – Retired Blackfoot Fire Captain Kurt Aikele was laid to rest Friday in Thomas.

KIDK reports Aikele served as a member of the Blackfoot Fire Department for more than 20 years until his life was cut short Dec. 8 following a four-year battle with lung cancer.

Aikele had officially retired only a few days before.

Aikele started the first paramedic class at the department and taught first aid and CPR classes alongside his wife at Idaho State University.
