Tribute to Past Members

Below you will find tributes to former members of the Pensaukee Fire Department. We are grateful for their service.

Assistant Chief Bruce Snyder

Bruce Snyder

Bruce Snyder was on the department for 25 plus years and served as Assistant Chief for 10 years. Bruce was best described as a soft spoken person that was easy to get along with. He was good natured enough to volunteer to be the victim for ladder training when everyone took State Firefighter I and II at our station with around 20 firefighters for both classes so you can guess that Bruce was helped or carried down the ladder many times. If you had a brat, hamburger or hot dog at one of our Fundraisers instead of Mikes Famous Boyah, Bruce would have been the one that fried that up. Even after Bruce retired from firefighter he still took care of the aging heaters at the old Fire Station and meeting hall and would be there as soon as possible to solve any problems.
