Today, October 22, 2015, the Governor has ordered the flag of the United States of America and the flag of New Jersey shall be flown at half-staff at all state departments in recognition of the life and in mourning of the passing of firefighter Gerald Celecki.
I would also like to commend the fire and police departments of South Amboy for the extremely solomn service that was conducted for Bear. I was very impressed and as Mayor very proud of the conduct of our fire department under Chief Mike Geraltowski and Police Chief Darren LaVigne.
I wish to send my condolenaces to Mrs. Rose Celecki and her family on the passing of her husband Jerry who collapsed while on duty directing traffic in response to a gas smell at a home on Parker Avenue. Jerry, who was nicknamed "Bear", was a longtime member of the South Amboy Fire Department and the South Amboy Fire Police. He will be missed. R.I.P.
