Memorial

When Charlie Haas was a young boy, he told his father that he wanted to be a fire fighter.

Most childhood dreams fade, however, for Charlie, this dream was to become an ambition,

and ambition to become reality. 
 
 Charlie Haas' life was fire fighting. Charlie never made a secret of his 
love for fire fighting and his dedication did not go unnoticed. He joined the 
High Falls Fire Department at age 16. After almost two years of training, 
Charlie became one of the most enthusiastic and dedicated fire fighters in 
Ulster County. Charlie enlisted in the Air Force as a Fire Fighter Specialist 
and from there he planned to become a professional firefighter with great 
enthusiasm. 
 
 Outside of fire fighting, Charlie's friends found him comical and just 
generally fun to be around. Charlie was a loyal friend and is greatly missed 
by those who knew him. 
 
 On February 17, 1981, Charles Haas was killed while fighting a fire 
that ended a promising career before it had really begun. He died doing 
what he loved most. He died a hero.
