LFD mourns the loss of Life Member George Slichko
The officers and members of Latham Fire Department mourn the loss of Life Member George Slichko, who passed away at age 91 on November 8, 2020. George joined the department in 1980 and was an active firefighter, member of the Board of Directors, executive committee, and rehabilitation committee of Latham Station #2. George also gave generously of his time working in the Firehouse Banquet Hall, keeping statistics and historical records of the Latham Fire Department. Many members remember George and his companion Barbara who spent countless hours in the station interacting with firefighters and EMS staff.
George worked professionally for Niagara Mohawk for many years and was a veteran serving in the United States Navy. He is survived by his sons Dan and Matt.
In keeping with George’s wishes there were no formal services, however LFD honored him by lowering our station flags and displaying funeral bunting on each station to commemorate his 40 years of service.
