Family, friends, and fellow firefighters gathered Friday morning at Sacred Heart Church in Hartsdale, for a final fire department send-off for Retired Greenville Fire Chief Daniel J. Raftery.

Chief Raftery passed away peacefully with his family by his side at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx on June 16, 2024 after a two-year battle with a 9/11-related cancer. He was 74 years old.

In 1973 Dan was hired as a Firefighter with the Greenville Fire District in Greenburgh, NY. He was promoted to Deputy Chief in 1985 and Chief of the Department in 1986. On September 11, 2001 Dan led his men down to the World Trade Center where they spent several days assisting with the search for missing civilians and first responders. He retired in 2020 after 47 years of service to the Greenville Fire Department.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Raftery Family during this difficult time.

God Bless.
