R.I.P. Kevin Seybold Ladder 1...forever! You will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and family. I remember my first tour with you. You showed me everything there was to know about the truck. I will never forget your most famous words of advice to me, "Go where you know Dude!" Thanks.

Seybold, hey bro rest in peace. I never got the chance to thank u for helping me understand certain fire service things when we were in the academy. Being a dude from the city and not having a clue, u explained it to me, and I'll never forget that.

You were always that quiet guy in the back of the class sitting next to Dan Seybert. U guys always had the answer to everything, and u weren't afraid to share it. I love u for that man. Because it helped me and a lot of other guys that won't admit it get through. But that's what made 0151 the best and closest: Teamwork...

To me the fire service was a job, to u and seybert, it was life. I see it now bro. I understand the passion. I wish I could've seen it years ago as a kid like u did. But better late than never, right?

Rest in peace brother. May u find the peace in death that we're all looking for in this crazy life...0151 for life...
