BANGOR – The governor has directed flags be lowered to half staff in the City of Bangor on Friday in honor of former Fire Chief Jeffrey Cammack.
Cammack passed away on Dec. 28 following a battle with cancer.
He had been part of the Bangor Fire Department for more than 33 years, serving as chief from 1996 to 2012.
He continued to serve the people of Maine even after his retirement, through the Maine Fire Chiefs’ Association.
Cammack’s funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at the Anah Shrine building on Broadway in Bangor.
A procession will then go from the Anah Shrine to Mount Hope Cemetery, where a graveside service will be held at 2 p.m.
In a statement, Gov. Janet Mills expressed her condolences, and added that Cammack’s service “represents the best of Maine and is a testament to the unmatched dedication of our first responders.”
