Montville — Members of the town's four volunteer fire departments donned dress blue uniforms and raised a massive U.S. flag Friday to mark the death of Monville Fire Company Deputy Chief Don Kutz.
Kutz, who served 52 years with the department and also was an emergency medical technician, died on Dec. 22, 2020, from complications of COVID-19. His wife, Christine, died just a few weeks before him of complications from the same disease.
Kutz's casket was transported in a vintage 1967 Mack pumper supplied the the Oswegatchie Fire Company of Waterford, during the procession to Comstock Cemetery.
