It is with deep sadness that the Katonah Fire Department announces the passing of Ex-Chief Michael Repp Sr. Mike “Pa” Repp Sr. joined KFD in June of 1958 and was still an active member of the department. He was an integral and knowledgeable firefighter assigned to Engine & Hose Company 3 (Ladder 39) for over 63 years. Mike Repp Sr. held many ranks within the department serving as Chief of Department from 1984-1986 and then President from 1989-1992. He was also elected by the community as a Fire Commissioner with the Katonah Fire District in 1994. Mike Repp Sr. taught math at John Jay Junior High for many years, inspiring several of his students to join KFD. However, the most important position he held was a loving husband and father to 4. Mike Repp Sr. has 2 sons and a nephew who followed in his footsteps by joining KFD.

We express our heartfelt condolences to the Repp family and we will cherish every moment we had with Pa Repp.
