The loss of a beloved fire chief weighs heavily on a Mason County community tonight.

It came as a shock to many because he seemed perfectly healthy.

Custer Fire Chief John Allison passed away at a Grand Rapids hospital last night.

He was brought to the hospital last Monday because he was having heart issues.
