Brother Charlie Laid to Rest

On Wednesday May 22nd, we laid to rest Ex-Captain Charles E. Duffy who had served the Smithtown community for 50 years. Gathered together were his family and friends to pay a final tribute. A funeral mass was held at St Patrick's Church followed by a procession past the family home, Engine Co. 5's station on Plymouth Blvd and then the Main Firehouse on Elm Ave. At the Main House an arch was raised and Capt. Duffy was brought past the firehouse for a final time. The procession then continued to the cemetery for burial, where his fellow members gave their final salute. 

The Chiefs, Officers and Members would like to extend our appreciation to the Smithtown community for their patience and understanding over the last few days as we laid our brother Charlie to rest. There were several road closures and detours around town to allow us to provide a fitting tribute to a man who served our community for 50 years. We thank you.
