“It is with great sadness that I ask you all to join me in extending our deepest condolences to the family and friends of a retired Hoboken Fire Chief Richard Tremitiedi who I was notified has passed away,” the Hoboken Fire Department Memories Facebook page wrote last night.
“No further information is available at this time. We thank-you Chief for your service to the citizens of Hoboken along side your brothers on the job. Rest in peace my friend.”
Tremitiedi served as a Mile Square City firefighter between June 1960 and September 1995 and became a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) instructor between 2010 and 2013, according to his LinkedIn page.
He was also a fire service subject matter expert for the New Jersey Department of Personnel (now the New Jersey Civil Service Commission) between 2000 and 2005 and a graduate of New Jersey City University.
In January 2021, Tremitiedi was one of the first Hoboken seniors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and encouraged others to do.
“We send condolences and prayers to the family of retired @HobokenFire Chief Richard Tremitiedi who we learned tonight has passed away. Thank you for your service Chief. #RIP,” the Hoboken Fire Department tweeted.
