RET FDNY FF EDWARD BEACH....Received from Ed Beach's daughter,



> It is with deep regret that I write this email to you. Ed passed away
yesterday afternoon. His wishes were to be cremated without a
viewing/wake. The arrangements have been made for this Saturday at the
crematory.
>
> As you know it's been a difficult time for both Ed and mom's health.
Mom's started immunotherapy treatment, but has experienced some bumps
along the road. Once mom is stronger we plan to have a celebration of
Ed's life and will communicate the information once planned.
>
> He enjoyed his time in the FDNY where he made so many great friends
and was dedicated to the job. Especially his Safety Bn team.

REST IN PEACE BROTHER....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES & FOR ED's WIFE ALSO BATTLING CANCER.

RET FDNY FF / WW2 VET  EDWIN "ED" CALLAN.....Ed was a USN WW2 Vet in both the Atlantic & Pacific Theaters.....After joining the FDNY in 1952 Ed worked in ENG*11 then on the Lower East Side ....when it was disbanded in 1959 the Unit formed the then short lived ENG*91-2 (not the later Fire War Years version) then when 91-2 was disbanded shortly after he went to ENG*294 where he worked until that was also disbanded (the first time) then he went to ENG*285 until he Retired in 1976 & ultimately moved to Fla...... Ed while in 91-2 worked in the same FH in Harlem on E 111 St for awhile in the late '50s that my Father in LAD*43 worked in ....after Ed transferred to the Queens Firehouse in my neighborhood i as a teenager & aspiring FF in 1961 used to go by there very often & hang out & talk to the FFs ...i found out that Ed had worked in Harlem before & that he knew my Father.... Ed was one of the friendliest guy's in that Firehouse & even several years later after i myself was on the FDNY i still saw Ed around the neighborhood from time to time....after he Retired & moved away i lost track until about a year & a half ago when a friend involved w/a Retirees group in Fla sent me some literature from them & one of the comments was from an Ed Callan ....i contacted my friend & asked him to find out if it was the same Ed from Engine 294 & it was...my friend gave Ed my e mail & we started corresponding & exchanging some old remembrances & i always forwarded Ed anything i received relative to the USN & of big Fires occurring in Woodhaven or Richmond Hill & we always exchanged many Patriotic things....last year in one of our back & forth messages Ed mentioned his Birthday was in April which was the same as mine....i guess i did not notice the lack of anything from him recently but today i sent him something & i was curious what exact date was his Birthday & it was "returned to sender" by the server then i realized i had not received anything from him for awhile....not sure how else to investigate i googled his name in Fla & sadly came up with this Obituary. from January ....REST IN PEACE TO A GREAT FF & A GREAT AMERICAN...THANK YOU FOR THE WW2 USN MILITARY SERVICE PERFORMED....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES.....GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN....   http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/bradenton/obituary.aspx?pid=177491908

  Chief JK, I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. I'm sure he went to many of the same fires that your father went to.

  FF Callan was a Role Model, a Great American and an FDNY War Years Firefighter.
