Although it was towards the end of September, I still would like to post this.
My Grandfather passed away suddenly from an apparent heart attack, he was 73. He was a retired Captain from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Fire Dept. (NH), as well as a former volunteer firefighter for the Town of Eliot ME. He is pre-deceased by my uncle who died in 1998 from the same thing. He too was a volunteer for the town of Eliot. Firefighters from the Shipyard, Kittery ME, York ME, Eliot ME, Kittery Point ME, Dover NH, and Rollinsford NH, attended the funeral.
The procession line was well over a mile long, and was escorted by a Kittery Police Officer. Also in the procession was the command vehicle and an engine from the shipyard, as well as the Eliot Fire Chief and several Eliot Firefighters.
