Paying Tribute to a Fallen Firefighter

Occasionally we are called to create a plaque to commemorate and memorialize a fallen colleague, co worker, friend, family member or another special person. Last November the City of Cleveland Fire Department Fire Station 22 lost one of their own in the line of duty. Fallen Firefighter, Johnny Tetrick was responding to an emergency on November 19, 2022, and was killed in the line of duty. AC Wellman had been called on to prepare a memorial for another Fallen Firefighter who was killed in 1985 from Fire Station 22. The men of Fire Station 22 called on us again to match the plaque we had done 38 years prior. At that time, reliefs were done with clay sculpting and a handset pattern. Nick went to work and created an image of Fallen Firefighter, Johnny Tetrick using 3D sculpting software and a handset pattern to replicate the existing plaque. It was a real privilege to be called to service for the men of Fire Station 22. We are honored to assist the firemen in remembering their fallen colleague.
