Remembering Lt. Peter B. Lund
Eleven-years ago today, the fire service lost a husband, father and friend. But, most of all they lost a teacher, mentor and role model. Over all they lost a great fireman. Peter B. Lund, retired Lieutenant F.D.N.Y., Past Chief Woodmere (New York) Fire Department and Active Member of the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. was killed in the line of duty while operating at a house fire in Long Island, NY.
This tragedy sent a shock wave through our family. It has been 4,015 days since Pete left due to his untimely death. He is remembered each and everyday by the members that knew him. What he stood for is also passed on each and everyday to the new members that didn’t.
The Officers and Membership of the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. ask that everyone take a moment today and remember Pete Lund in your thoughts and prayers. We miss you, Lieutenant Vulcan “God of Fire”.
