Message from Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Company, May 9, 2016:
It is with deep regret we announce the passing of Past Chief Emile Racenet. Emile joined Stony Hill FD in 1963 and served as Chief from 1983-1985. He served close to 40 years with our Company. He helped bring the department into the modern era through many projects and safety upgrades, sitting on the committee to purchase Engine 1 (now Engine 11), a 1983 Pierce Pumper that now serves the entire Town of Bethel as a reserve apparatus. He was the epitome of a no nonsense, hard working firefighter and Boss. He touched the lives of many both thru the FD and in his personal life and will be missed. Rest In Peace Chief, we got it from here.
