Mark, 56, died last Wednesday night due to complications from an infection.


Then, early Thursday morning, 69-year-old Lee suffered a heart attack upon hearing the news his little brother had passed away.



The brothers embodied nearly 30 years of service and dedication to the fire department and community. They joined the fire company together on the same day.


“For the fire company and the township, you really can’t describe it. The two guys, they did everything,” Gary Brewer, of the Cranberry Township Fire Department, said.



Their funeral was held this morning at the Dutilh United Methodist Church, followed by the burial and a luncheon.
