The Rye Fire Department and its members mourn the loss of 17-year volunteer member Richard F. Cadigan, who passed away on January 31.
Cadigan joined the Poningoe Hook and Ladder Company shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, and served the City of Rye as a firefighter until his death. During his time as a firefighter, he served as a warden and as captain of the Poningoe Hook and Ladder Company.
Always smiling and a dedicated member, Richie will be missed by all who knew him.
