ADMIRED NORTH GREECE FD PAST FIRE POLICE OFFICER, JACK SPRY, BADGE #95 PASSES
Submitted by Gene Preston, Secretary North Greece FD Fire Police
It is with much sadness in our hearts that the North Greece FD Fire Police Squad announces the passing of one of its brother officers, John A. (Jack) Spry 89, August 6, 2017.
Respectfully known as “The Silver Fox,” Mr. Spry’s legacy will live on forever. Life member, past president of department and exempt association, Navy veteran, and past fire police officer, a FD Code “F” ceremony was held August 11 at the Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, Greece, NY.
An impressive turnout of firefighters, auxiliary, exempt members, and family at the funeral home joined together in a beautiful prayer service and fire bell-ringing ceremony. Then Saturday morning at Resurrection Lutheran Church and White Haven Memorial Cemetery, Rev. Andrew Gookin conducted a superb service as did the U.S.Navy Reserve Honor Guard at the gravesite.
Thanks to NGFD Lieutenant Dan Dickerson and his crew of Group 1 for their show of respect with Engine 274 as the funeral procession passed by NGFD Fire Headquarters.
