County of Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz County Fire Department Statement:

With a heavy heart, the County of Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz County Fire Department announce the death of a volunteer recruit during weekend training exercises. On Sunday, Feb. 19, Daniel Lamothe, 38, of Santa Cruz, became medically distressed during a joint firefighter academy training session at Ben Lomond Training Center.

“We mourn the passing of one of our brethren,” County Fire Chief Nate Armstrong said:

“Daniel wanted to be a firefighter so that he could give back to the community where he was raised and in which he lived. His commitment to public service serves as a model for us all. We grieve along with his friends and family for this sudden and tragic loss.”

He received immediate medical attention from trained medical personnel on the scene, but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. To confirm his cause of death, an autopsy is performed. During the winter, County Fire offers unincorporated regions of the County services such as wildland and structural fire protection, emergency medical care, fire prevention, fire marshall, and community education.

For these services, the County has a contract with CAL FIRE. And the CAL FIRE San Mateo-Santa Cruz Unit Chief serves as the Santa Cruz County Fire Chief.

Five devoted volunteer fire companies make up County Fire, which helps to deliver high-quality fire protection and emergency response services.

Stellar Corpses Statement:

Dan Lamothe was acknowledged as one of the band’s co-founders by Stellar Corpses and the county.

So incredibly sad to hear about the passing of our former bassist and co-founder, Dan “Mothman” Lamothe. There are no words to describe the flood of emotions right now. Life is already so short, but Dan went way too soon.

He was a close friend for many many years and we went through a lot together. I will always remember him as the 16-year-old psychobilly kid I met at a Tiger Army shows at the Santa Cruz Vets Hall. I asked him if he wanted to start a band with me and a few years later we got to share the stage with them.

So many amazing moments we experienced together playing music with the bands that inspired us. Our dreams and music and memories will never die. Rest in Peace, my friend. -Stellar Corpses
