Former Fire Chief Peter Phelan Has Died

Pete Phelan, who served 33 years with the Milford Fire Department and who served as chief in the late 1990s, died early Wednesday morning at Milford Hospital.

Phelan, who was 84, was also active in St. Mary’s Church and parish activities, and was one of the fire department’s “dinosaurs,” retired members who serve hot coffee to firefighters, and media, at fire scenes.

Funeral services have not yet been announced. Join me in extending condolences to the Phelan family and remember him in your prayers today.
