Lester McClure, 90, a museum friend and ardent supporter, passed away peacefully on June 28 at Community General Osteopathic Hospital.   Les, the retired master mechanic for the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire, was appointed to the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire on September 17, 1955, and was one of only two living Fire Bureau members who began their career during the 1950s. He held the distinction of being the last of only four men to hold the position of master mechanic in the bureau. Les was also past president of the former Reily Hose Company No. 10 in which the museum is housed today.             

            The funeral services will be held on Friday, July 6, at noon in Wiedeman Funeral Home, 2253 Derry Street, Harrisburg. Burial with Military Honors will be in East Harrisburg Cemetery. Les will be borne to his final resting place aboard Engine 16, the museum’s 1947 Mack engine, which is one of the few retired Harrisburg fire apparatus in running condition and one of the many rigs that Les maintained over the years.
