It is with deep regret that the Marlborough Fire Department and Marlborough Firefighters IAFF Local 1714 announce the passing of Lieutenant Paul "Smokey" Soumoulis. Smokey passed away after a valiant battle against cancer on 25 December 2001.

Smokey was a charter member of Local 1714 and retired in 2000. He served most of his career on Group 1 at Station 2, also known as "the Hill". he sereved as the engineer of the pumper stationed at the hill, and was assigned there as a Lieutenant in 1985. He finished his career as a Lieutenant on Engine 3 at Station 3.

Smokey's wit, wisdom and great sense of humor will be sorely missed by all.
