RET FM TOM BIESLEN....I received this e mail from RET Corona Tiger Pete G. regarding Tom.....QUOTE..To All, I have some bad news. "Tom Bieslen" retired Fire Marshal out of the Brooklyn Base and a member of "The Peoples Firehouse", has passed away. Tom has been cremated already. No Funeral or wake. He passed 3 days ago. What he left is money for all of us to have a party on HIM! That will be at a later date, I will contact everyone. Tom was also know as MSGT Tom Bieslen from the 106th C.E, Fire Dept. at Westhampton, Gabreski Airport. I had the pleasure of calling Tom a good friend. As, many of you know Tom and a lot of us traveled the world together. We, Lovingly called Tom "Joe Polucka" The last time I saw Tom was at Wally Hasting wake, He was not in good health then. He and talked for some 2 hours. It hurts me deeply even to write this to you guys. Please remember Tom and his Family Jeanie and her two daughters in your paryers. Pete G. ..UNQUOTE.... REST IN PEACE BROTHER ....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BOTH MILITARY & FDNY.....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES......Before Promotion to Fire Marshall Tom was a FF in ENG*94 then ENG*212.

BIESELIN Thomas J. 72, award-winning husband, coolest dad-grandpa, master storyteller, avid reader, lover of beer and super friend to many, died on November 14, 2017. Tom was a shining example of hard work and tenacity which he put into practice in all of his career paths, most notably for decades as Firefighter and Fire Marshall with the FDNY at Engine 212 in Brooklyn. Tom was a Veteran and served in the US Marine Corps, Army National Guard and retired as a Master Sergeant from the Air National Guard. In his retirement, Tom was the President and CEO of his self-made company, Case Closed Inc., providing investigative services for EEO claims. Tom's legacy as an incredible person lives on through his wife of 50 years, best friend and teenage sweetheart, Jean Bieselin, his smart, kind daughters Julie, Christine and Amy, their equally fantastic husbands, Josh Faby, James Clark and Mark Craparo, his favorite (and only) grandchild Casey Elizabeth Craparo, his sister Lee and her husband Larry Blatt, his brother Herb (who recently passed away) and Herb's wife Dorothy, and a village of friends gained over his many well-lived decades. In lieu of flowers, have your car's oil changed and check your tire pressure. Tom would have wanted you to drive safely. Donations can also be made in Tom's name to: The NY Firefighters Burn Center Foundation, The Bowery Mission (NYC), Marine Toys for Tots Foundation or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital- all charities that Tom & Jean proudly supported. A celebration of Tom's life is planned for December with details to follow.

 I have read every individual name posted in these 56 pages. No matter who they were or where they worked, "these guys fought some fires". Every one of them saw their share of work. They were the most experienced firefighters the world has ever seen. If you wanted to learn something about the job, these guys were the one's to learn it from. Not one ever hesitated to try and help me or anybody else who wanted to learn from their experience. Yet they were the last one's to brag about the great jobs they did.

 What I learned from them you just can't learn from a book or a classroom. The moral in the firehouses was at it's highest level. These guys taught firefighters what Brotherhood is really all about.

 The spouses and families of these guys had to be a very special type of individual as well. With the staggering numbers of fires, there was so much more chance of getting hurt, or worse.

 I was just lucky that I got to be a very small part of this generation of FDNY firefighters. It is sad to see so many of them passing on these days. I'm sure each guy could write his own book on his FDNY experiences.

 May they ALL Rest in Peace. They certainly did their part in saving so many lives. They helped so many people over those years. If any body gets to go to a place called Heaven, "it's these guys". NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.
