It is with deep regrets that the Riverhead Fire Department announces the passing of Ex-Commissioner & Ex-Captain of the Red Bird Hook & Ladder Company Richard Ligon.

Richie passed away earlier this week at his home. He was 77 years old.

Locally he was a past president of the North Fork Volunteer Firemans Association, and was general ambassador of good will wherever he went.

Visitation hours will be held on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Riverhead Fire Department on Roanoake Ave. in Riverhead.

The Riverhead Fire Department will hold a firematic service on Saturday Evening 7:30 p.m at the Riverhead Fire Department.

A funeral service will take place on Monday, May 15 at 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Riverhead, 1018 Northville Turnpike, Riverhead, with a viewing preceding the service, beginning at 10 a.m. Interment will follow the service at Calverton National Cemetery.
