My grandfather, Glen L. Fitch, passed away last tuesday. He was a good man. He was always looking out for his family, which included stepsons and step grandchildren that he took in under his wing just as if they were blood relatives. He was part of the New Sharon Fire Department for nearly 40 years. His funeral was held on Sunday at the New Sharon Congregational Church, where he had attended every Sunday since I was a child. The Fire Department handled the pall bearer duties and they used the 1969 Dodge Fire Truck to carry Grampa to the cemetery instead of a traditional hearse. All of the lights were blacked out and a half mile of US Route #2 was shut down to allow the precession to pass without being impeded by normal traffic.
We’ll miss you Grampa.
