Chicago FD LODD Firefighter/EMT Andrew Price (more)

Excerpts from

Fallen Chicago Firefighter Andrew “Drew” Price, 39, who died while battling a fire at a Lincoln Park building Nov. 13, was laid to rest on Monday. He was a 14-year veteran of the department and the widely respected driver of Truck 44.

Navy Pier’s Aon Grand Ballroom was packed full of mourners who shared their sorrows and support for the family, friends and fellow firefighters. A husband, brother, son and uncle, Price was known for his infectious personality, always exuding positivity.

Flags will be flown at half-staff through sundown on Nov. 20 to honor Price, whose death marks the fourth line-of-duty death the Chicago Fire Department has seen this year. In August, Lt. Kevin Ward, 59, died after battling a blaze in Norwood Park. In April, two firefighters — Jermaine Pelt, 49, and Jan Tchoryk, 55, were killed battling two different blazes in the city.; #ChicagoFD; #funeral; #LODD; #JimmyBolf; #AndrewPrice;
