Then on March 19th, The Chiefs announced that Veteran Firefighter Theodore O. "Sarge" Beebe, had also answered his last alarm.

He will be honored on Wednesday during a private graveside service with family and friends.

Ironically, both of these gentleman had ties to CFD's beginnings. Both Ted and Jack's fathers were among the original Charter members that formed the United Fire Company # 1 on February 15, 1928. Their fathers names are on a plaque on the front of the firehouse.

The Chiefs, Officers and Members of the Cutchogue Fire Department would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to entire Kane & Beebe families and all of Jack & Ted's friends here at CFD.

Our Thoughts and prayers are with them during these difficult times.
