For the ten years when he maintained the fire engines, he almost never left town.
“I don’t want to get too far away to hear the fire siren,” he said.
His second love, after fire safety, was music and sound equipment.
He had a mobile unit with speakers on his car. At Christmas, he’d drive
around town playing Christmas carols.
