Station 28 Eddington Fire Company after 45 years of service to this organization and 10 years with Station 8 Penndel Fire Company, both companies have lost a true hero. Silvi Dalessandro to us is and always will be a great leader, a mentor, one of the kindest and sincere person we could ever meet. A man that treated everyone with the utmost respect, someone we are honored to know and more than that, someone we were proud to have called our true friend and brother. Silvi, may you rest in peace, watch over us, protect us, as we try to live up to the level of standards that you have lived by and have set for us to achieve. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this hard time.
