We Mourn Our Loss
Irving Isenberg 12/17/1963 - 11/1/2019
Line of Duty Death
It is with profound sadness and heartache that the Getzville Fire Company family announces the passing of our friend and colleague, Irving Isenberg. Irv was a member of the Getzville Fire Company for 29 years and held the offices of Fire Chief from 2007-2011 and President from 2016-2018. Irv was a part of a state-wide mutual aid deployment to Ground Zero after the September 11th attacks. Irv was one of four Getzville firefighters stationed at Albany Street and West Street, a mere block away from Ground Zero. After being diagnosed with job-related cancer from his heroic efforts in lower Manhattan, Irv's last few weeks were spent with family and friends as he battled until the very end. Irv was surrounded by the ones he loved, and was in the thoughts and prayers of his friends, coworkers and the many lives that he touched over his 35 year career as a first responder.
