Fire Fighter Tribute Up-date
Updated On: Aug 12, 2010

Recently, additions have been made to the Green Bay Fire Fighters Tribute locate on the banks of the Fox River. These newly added engraved bricks contain the names of those fire fighters who either retired since the Tribute was dedicated in 2008 or those who have left the department for other opportunities.  In 2009, bricks recognizing Captains Jeff Jacobe, Nick Moore, Robert Krueger; Lieutenants James DeGroot and Wayne Huemphner; Engineer Scott Merline; and Fire Fighters Larry Erdmann, Melissa Jones, Steve Kramer, and Brad Racine were added.  In addition, research led to the discovery of information that resulted in bricks being placed  that recognized Assistant Chiefs William Gleason and Lawrence Fleming; Captains William Selissen, William Bomber, Henry DeGreef, James Lester, John Stroobants, Albert Netols, Peter Peckinpaugh, Henry Harris, Warren Spoffard, and James Lester; and Lieutenant William Cropsey.

40 other engraved bricks were also added recognizing numerous fire fighters from that period in history when Green Bay was served by such fire companies as the Washington Hose Company, the Guardian and Fort Howard Fire Company and the Germania Fire Company. These bricks were randomly placed around the base of the monument. It is expected that as research continues, additional names will be discovered. As this occurs, these too, will be added to the Tribute.
