    Vince Braun was a firefighter that I worked with in the mid 60’s, and He was also a cousin of my wife, Carol. Vince was a good guy and had a lot of different talents. I remember his stories of the progress of his “cement hull ” boat he was building in his back yard. When it came time to get it out from behind the house, it took a very large crane to lift it over the house. He was very handy with tools and could create almost anything in metal, including perfect copies of antique long rifles. We will miss him. George and Carol DeMott

    Vince was fireman at my very first assignment out of the drill tower in 1965. Capt. Gordie Hall, Eng. Boyd Chapman, Eng. Bob Anderson, Frm. Vince Braun, Frm. Jay Ellington and me.
    I recall doing a brake job in the back yard when Chief Nave showed up and Capt. Hall was on the roof sunbathing. Hall chewed him out for interrupting his nap time. Chinese checkers was the game and I couldn’t play because it cost a dime to play and was considered gambling because the winner got the fifty cents. Many times during heated moves the board would be flipped and the marbles were all over the place. I remember that it fell to me to pick them up.
    Vince had a dry sense of humor, and used it quite often.
    RIP Vince
