THE LOSS OF A CHIEF AND MENTOR – Members of the Sanatoga Fire Company are mourning the death during the weekend of former Fire Chief Dennis “Denny” Miller. The chief joined the company in 1976, rose through its ranks with hard work and effort, and saw it through occasionally difficult times, they said. On its website, the company noted Miller helped train new and veteran members alike, he kept company equipment humming as chief engineer, and his face seemed to be alight in a perpetual smile. Firefighters hung black bunting Sunday (Aug. 2, 2015) atop the East High Street firehouse, and lowered its flag to half-staff. Lower Pottsgrove Township Fire Marshall officially informed the Board of Commissioners of Miller’s death during its Monday night (Aug. 3, 2015) meeting.
