WINSTED — During the annual Winsted Fire Department’s parade on Saturday, Aug. 28, veteran firefighter Timothy Moran was honored for his service to the community.
Moran served in the department for 33 years until he retired in January.
Moran was chosen by the department this year to be the honorary parade marshal.
He started in the fire department in 1988 as a firefighter.
“Tim worked his way to the captain of Engine One,” Fire Chief James Lagasse. “He was a fire instructor, a mentor, and leader for the fire department. He was a leader for many years, and he was the chairman of the parade for the majority of the time he was in the department. Since he retired in January, he has been greatly missed. Thank you for everything you have done for the department.”
Moran was presented with a plaque for his dedication and faithful service to the department.
“You will forever be part of our history,” Lagasse said.
He was also presented with a proclamation honoring and recognizing his service by Mayor Candy Perez.
“You’ve not only been a great fireman, but you have been a great guy,” Mayor Perez said. “You have always helped out throughout the town. We wish that there were more people out there in the mold of Timothy Moran when it comes to participating in the community.”
“I would like to thank everybody I have worked with, especially Engine One,” Moran said.
