A longtime board member for the Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District has stepped down to spend more time with his family.
Joseph Marcus, who has served on the board for more than 40 years, resigned at a Dec. 9 meeting. Marcus said he has 20 children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
“There’s a bunch of them, and when you get to be close to 78 years old, it’s like, ‘What the hell am I doing? …’ ” he said. “I am 77-and-a-half years old, and it’s about time to go.”
