Remembering a tragedy, 50 years later

(Page 3 of 3)

The names of the three firefighters killed in this tragic accident are remembered at the Firefighter’s Memorial at the corner of Sunrise Highway and Earle Avenue. Every year, in October, Lynbrook firefighters remember them and three others who have died in the line of duty for this village. A separate stone honoring Roy is located on the lawn in front of the apartments at 60 Hempstead Avenue at the corner of Peninsula Boulevard where she died in the performance of her duties.

This Sunday, April 28, at 9 a.m. the members of Engine Company, along with the membership of the Lynbrook Fire Department, will once again gather at the Firefighter’s Memorial to honor those that died that day so many years ago.
