Ambridge Council held a moment of silence Tuesday night for Bernard Grzegorek. He was 87.
Councilman Michael Mikulich, who asked for the moment of silence, said Grzegorek served in the capacity of firefighter, captain, lieutenant, and assistant fire chief. He spent four years as fire chief before retiring.
The department is honoring Grzegorek with a makeshift memorial at the permanent firefighter memorial.
