He will be buriedin the Unadilla Cemetery. Condolences to his many
family and friends.
Sunday evening, March 17, Unadilla Volunteer Fire & Rescue held their annual
banquet at The Bar.Arliss, the meal was wonderful as usual. And there were some
great old memories shared. The newEMT's are Alexis Seelhoff and
Sam Radford. Honored for answering the most fire calls was Alexis
Seelhoff; for the most rescue calls was Steve Vodicka. Irene Rodaway was
honored for her 20 yearsof service and Steve Vodicka, Betty Vodicka and
Linda Liesemeyer were honored for 25 years of service. What would we do
without these folks? Please thank them for their dedication. If you'd like
