Delaware Stories

William J. Fraser, Dover

(Nominated by Jessica Feinberg)
Dover Fire Department Headquarters
June 16, 2011

Mr. Fraser is 94 years old and is the oldest living member of the Aetna Hose Hook and Ladder Company in Newark, DE.  He is also the oldest in years of service to the fire company by serving with them for over 73 years.  While a member of this fire company he served as president, vice president and several other positions.  He is well known in the Newark community not only from his service as a volunteer firefighter, but also as a retired US Postal Service employee where he worked for over 20 years in Newark, DE.  Mr. Fraser is a kind man always ready to help a friend or family member in need, taking people to doctor’s appointments and helping with handy projects around the house.  Mr. Fraser will be leaving a strong legacy of service in the Newark community and I hope you will consider giving him the privilege of extending that legacy by being a part of stitching of The National 9/11 Flag.
