Posted by wlpo on October 20, 2013

He began as a LaSalle fire department volunteer and in time, became Peru’s Fire Chief. Gary Eccles lost a battle with cancer Saturday and leaves behind his wife and three daughters. Peru officer Mark Credi was a close friend and said Eccles was a hero in the true sense of the word. He was thoughtful , caring and a loving family man. Numerous fire departments are sending their sympathies to the Eccles family and the Peru fire department via facebook. One of Gary’s daughters, Brittany reads news weekdays on 96-5 The Wolf and 99-3 WAJK.
