ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Spencerport Fire District is mourning the sudden death of David Resch, the fire district's commissioner and chairman.

Spencerport Fire District Chief Tom Clark says Resch apparently suffered a medical emergency while driving home on Gillett Road in Ogden Thursday night from a Board of Commissioners meeting.

Clark released a statement Friday which read, in part:

"On behalf of the entire Spencerport Fire District organization, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Commissioner Resch. We also appreciate the quick response and partnership of the Ogden Police Department and Gates Volunteer Ambulance Service during the incident. We would also like to thank the staff at Unity Hospital for their professionalism and care. At this time, we ask that the community please keep the Resch Family in their thoughts as this loss affects everyone who had the honor of knowing David and his extended family. Further details regarding funeral arrangements will be announced at a later time and in keeping with the family’s wishes."

Ogden Police are investigating, Clark said.
