The Beachwood FD regrets to announce the passing of Auxiliary Member Lynn (Smith) Panzca, who lost her courageous battle against cancer. Lynn was a big part of our firehouse family, first being around the station as a child when her father, Exempt Member Thomas Smith, served our Department. Her favorite truck was our 1937 Diamond T "Smoke-Eater". She then joined our Auxiliary unit and would go on to proudly serve while her son, Greg, was a firefighter in our Department. Lynn will be missed by all that knew her. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the entire Panzca family.
