Worcester Fire Tragedy

Last Alarm




We regretfully announce the death of Firefighter Leonard Winslow Ret. who passed away on Friday, April 30. Lenny retired in 1983 after more than 32 years of service. Even after his retirement he stayed close to the members as a result of being the night and weekend security man for the Levi Gould Retirement Home. It was his job to let the firefighters and EMT's in to help residents who where in need of medical care. He was always asking how things were going on the job and, much to their dismay,continued to refer to the newer members as "rookies" even though some of them had over 10 years on the job. His legacy will no doubt be painting of all the fire alarm boxes in the city a few summers ago, which unfortunately included painting most of them shut. :)  Click on the obituary for funeral arrangements. Love you Dad, you will be dearly missed.


Condolences go out to the family of Firefighter Roy Loveys Ret. FF Loveys was appointed to the department in June of 1947 and retired in March of 1980. Roy spent most of his career on Ladder 1.  (obituary)
