Firefighters Honor Former Fire Chief

Posted: Updated:
The former Mandan Fire Chief Peter Gartner was buried today.

Gartner, a military veteran, received a 21 gun salute and was laid to rest at the Veterans Cemetery in Mandan. Friends, family and Mandan firefighters all came to pay their respects.

"He was my hero. When you know firefighters personally, it really means a lot. That's what I'm going to miss. It just meant a lot for us to have the Mandan Fire Department give their last farewell to my grandpa," says Gartner's granddaughter Angie Mackey. 

Gartner leaves behind a wife of 68 years, five children and more than 20 grand and great-grandchildren.
