Tommy Reutter Photos Part 1

73 years of dedicated service to the Seaside Heights Volunteer Fire Company and nearly three decades of public service as a borough councilman.  I hope these images and photos from a combination of collections (Dr. Anthony E. & Mary Ellen Vaz Collection and The Terry Groffie Collection) help all of you remember Tommy and his family during this sad time.  You can enlarge the images with your mouse.

Passing of Thomas Reutter

Received the very sad news that Tommy Reutter passed away. To repeat how I described Tommy in the Acknowledgments section of my book, “Tommy is the definition of gentleman.” I am comforted by an image that comes to mind of Tommy’s wife Dorothy meeting Tommy at Heaven’s Gate and standing behind her are Terry, Leonard, Jerry, Tony, John, Jack, Dell, and all of our deceased Brother Firemen from the Seaside Heights Volunteer Fire Company.

Goodnight Friend. Rest in peace.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade Video

This is a video of scenes from the annual St. Patrick’s Parade held in Seaside Heights yesterday (March 12, 2011). The video starts with pre-parade activities at Station 44 and then video shot from inside Ladder 4401 along the parade route. The final 15 minutes of the video shows parade highlights shot from Hancock Avenue and the Boulevard. Give your mouse a left click over the photo to get the video rolling.
