TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A Golder Ranch Fire District captain died in a Monday motorcycle wreck.

According to the department, Capt. Lucas Giampa died Monday afternoon from injuries in the wreck that morning near Irvington and Benson Highway.

He was a Pima Community College adjunct instructor in the Fire Science program and worked as a first aid and CPR instructor.

“Captain Giampa was a man of conviction," Golder Ranch Fire Chief Randy Karrer said in a statement. "He was principled and had a strong internal compass. He loved his job and we were blessed to work with him.”
