An EMS provider with the Davidson County Rescue Squad (NC) passed away while on a call Wednesday, the ambulance squad said.

Richard Montgomery joined the service last year and monitored the group’s juniors program, according to Christy Leonard, the vice president of the rescue squad. Montgomery’s mother told Leonard he died doing what he loved.

“Please pray for his parents, his family and friends,” Leonard wrote on a Facebook post. “Please pray for our Juniors. And pray for our first responders and EMS partners who worked so hard to provide life-saving treatment to Richard.”
