PARSIPPANY, NJ - Past Chief of Parsippany Rescue and Recovery Francisco Munoz has passed away.  He was a lifetime member of the organization and passed away peacefully on Thursday morning.

The Rescue organization posted the following on Facebook, "He was a tremendous asset to the organization. Franco's dedication to emergency services started in his native country of Chile as a firefighter. As an active rescue technician and public safety diver he will be sorely missed by all. His personality was contagious. Outside of Rescue, he was a true family man. He always had his camera capturing pictures of his beautiful wife and children. They traveled and loved to eat. He loved them. We thank the Munoz family for sharing Franco with us. Our condolences to the family."
