In Memory Of Patrick Wolterman

Patrick Wolterman heroically passed away very early the morning of December 28 as he was battling a house fire and searching for possibly elderly occupants inside. The Hamilton Fire Department was dispatched to the location and upon arriving Patrick was the first one inside. After entering the first floor collapsed into the basement. A mayday was immediately called and Patrick was rescued from the basement by his fellow brother fire fighters. He sadly succumbed to his injuries from the fall at the hospital shortly after. 

Patrick had been a member of Hamilton Local 20 since the end of April and was extremely dedicated and passionate about his career. He was hard working and selfless. Patrick could put a smile on anyone's face. He was always making everyone laugh uncontrollably. He also happened to be a wonderful cook. His meals were fantastic and second to none. He was a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, especially Michelangelo! But above all else, he was loving. You could see how much he loved his wife Bre just by the way he looked at her. He was a loving brother, son, uncle, and friend to so many. 

Patrick's legacy will be forever remembered as a hero. He touched countless lives and his sacrifice to save others will never be forgotten. 

This page is set up to help my cousin, Bre Wolterman and the rest of Patrick's family, cover the costs of the funeral and all other expenses moving forward. We are extremely thankful for any donation made.
