Chief Cady Celebration of Life To Be Held Sep. 8th

All are welcome to celebrate the life and legacy of former Fort Ellis Fire Chief Frederick Cady. Fred, who was chief of the department from 2000-2009, died in May while in Denver following a short illness. He was 77.

During his long tenure both as a firefighter and as chief, Fred transformed Fort Ellis Fire/Rescue writing grants for new trucks, personal protective equipment, such as bunker gear and self-contained breathing apparatus, and upgrading the way our volunteers train and respond to emergencies.

A celebration of his life is planned for September 8th, 2019 at Lindley Park in Bozeman. All are invited. Per Fred's own wishes, his celebration will include beer, brats, and live music. All are invited to attend.
