In Memoriam


We offer our prayers and gratitude to the following individuals for their devotion to duty and their strength, courage and foresight in making the Goshen Fire Department the proud and outstanding organization that it has been since 1945.

"May they not be Forgotten"

author unknown

Brother when you weep for me,

Remember that it was meant to be.


Lay me down and when you leave,

Remember I’ll be at your sleeve.


In every dark and choking hall,

I’ll be there as you slowly crawl.

On every roof in driving snow,

I’ll hold your coat and you will know.


In cellars hot with searing heat,

At windows where a gate you meet,

In closets where young children hide,

You know I’ll be there at your side.


As fireman, we understand

That death’s a card dealt in our hand.

A card we hope we never play,

But one we hold anyway.


That card is something we ignore,

As we crawl across a weakened floor.

For we all know that we’re only a Prayer,

For anyone that might be there.


So remember, as you wipe your tears,

The joy I felt throughout the years.


As I did the job I loved to do.

I pray that thought will see you through.
