Bittersweet day yesterday. It was my last working day in the firehouse. I’m officially retiring after 29 years with the City of Trenton Fire Department. I would like to thank all the Firefighters both active, retired, and my Family and friends, who came to the firehouse to give me that much appreciated last day celebration. I’ve had a great career.

These things never slowed me down, but I took it as a life lesson, teaching moment, or looked at how grateful i am to still be here. “Willever Strong” and press on.
