Firefighters Honored

September 30, 2013

NEW BREMEN — When the tent was full, people stood in the rain dedicate a stretch of highway to New Bremen’s fallen volunteer firefighters Kenneth Jutte and John Garman, who died 10 years ago, on Oct. 1, 2003.

Retired New Bremen Fire Department Assistant Chief Steve McDermitt said the rain reminded him of baptism, seeing the event in the rain, then connecting that to the two deaths, he was reminded of the term “baptism by fire.”
