The Officers and Members of the Woolwich Fire Company announce with deep regret, the passing of Past Chief Phillip J. Mattson with 59 years of dedicated service.
"PJ" as he was affectionally known, joined the fire company in 1964 as a reserve member, soon becoming an active member in 1966. Chief Mattson served in many roles in the fire company including President, Assistant Treasurer, Trustee, Relief Representative and Trustee. PJ was drafted into the Army in 1968, completing his training in April of 1969 and serving in Vietnam for 1 year as a Combat Engineer. Chief Mattson also served in many Fire Officer roles including 1st and 2nd Assistant Chief, Fire Inspector, Fire Marshall, eventually becoming in Chief of the Fire Company in 1980. He would serve as chief from 1980 to 1989 and again from 1993 to 1995.
Anyone who knows Chief Mattson would say the same, tough on the fire grounds with a purpose but a dedicated family man and public servant. Chief Mattson used to say "Give me a booster line, high pressure, that's all we need to get the fire." It was PJ's way, for all the better. It was a privilege to have had this man and our friend be a part of something so important our community, including 14 years at Chief. Chief Mattson's absence has been felt deeply within the Fire Company, he will surely be missed.
“All men were created equal, then a few become firemen.” – Unknown

If your wondering why the photo of his locker, bill says he lost the key about 20 years ago and hasn’t opened it since! Don’t worry, he didn’t have any expired snacks in there all those years.

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that Woolwich Fire Company announces the passing of two of our longest serving members, Joseph Drager and Joseph Slusar Jr.
Mr. Drager joined the Fire Company in 1946 at the age of 16. He had previously served as Fire Marshall in the late 60's and 70's with more than 14 years in the Fire Marshall position. Mr. Drager was the longest serving member of the Fire Company with 77 years of service. He was 98 years old.
Mr. Slusar joined the fire company in 1962, shortly before joining the Navy and shipping off to Vietnam at 17 years old. Joe served his country for three tours aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard. Upon returning from the Navy in 1967, Joe served in many positions within the Fire Company including President, Secretary, Relief Representative and Secretary and Chief Engineer for over 18 years. Joe's wise cracking but uniquely humble personality was revered by many, mentoring much of our membership over the decades of service including those serving today. There are too many stories to count, as every member has one to tell. As it turns out for Joe, Firefighting is a family affair as his Son Brian and grandsons Joe, Nicholas and Zachary are or have previously been members. Brian is currently serving as Deputy Chief. Joe served 61 years with the Fire Company, he was 78 years old. He would have turned 79 today, April 15th.
