Susan Diane Murphree once said, “Firemen never die, they just burn forever in the hearts of the people whose lives they saved.”
With the passing of Westbury Fire Department ex-Chief Richard Dellacona, we lose another selfless volunteer and friend in the community.
Rich’s decades of service to Westbury are a reminder, much like the sirens and flashing lights, of the altruism many of our neighbors put on display every day.
Fires are a part of life, and fortunately, we can call on those whose lives are spent fighting them.
