Retired firefighter Deputy Chief Dave Mills in a video produced by the Arlington Heights Memorial Library talks about his career as an Arlington Heights firefighter.

Arlington Heights Fire Department Deputy Chief David Mills, 84, died on Monday after a short illness. He is remembered as a kind-hearted, dedicated firefighter, who was a leader that led by doing and teaching. Mills was a straight-talking, but gentle-talking man who knew how to confront a task and alleviate a conflict.

Mills joined the Arlington Heights Fire Department with Badge No. 1 in 1957, was promoted to lieutenant in 1964, captain in 1969 and deputy chief in 1975. He retired Sepember 15, 1989. Much of his time as deputy chief was served with Fire Chief John “Keach” Hayden, who died following a two-year battle with lung cancer in Port St. Lucie, Florida in December, 2000.

Mills was also a member of the Illinois Fire Chiefs Association, Illinois Professional Firefighters Association and the International Association of Fire Chiefs and served as president of the Northeastern Illinois Fire Chiefs Association.
