I look at this site at least once a week. My dad, Ernie Johnson III, was a member before he died back in 2000. He used to take my sister and I over to the firehouse when we were little. I loved it there. I love how big the firetrucks seemed and the color because its not the usual color. I miss going there when I come down to visit my family. I loved the atmosphere there, it was exciting. You guys are doing a great job and stay safe.

I just found this web page. I lived in Westwood (a great place to live) during the late 40's until the early sixties. As a matter of fact, while reading the history of the fire company, it brought back a lot of names of people I knew. I spent a lot of time at the fire house while I was young. My father was Howard Byerly one of the original members and the first president of the fire company.

I remember being there when they were building the first fire house. My father was in charge of the construction of the building and, as a very young boy, I would tag along with him during those times, thinking that I was really helping. I was probably more in the way than anything. But, they were great memories.

I read in your history that you still have some of the original minutes of the first meetings. I'd like to come by some time, if I could, and read them. I'm sure they would bring back a lot of memories that I have forgotten. I was also there at those first meetings.

You've made great progress since those days. I wouldn't expect anything less from people in Westwood. They were always the best!

To Westwood Fire Company #1 of Valley Township: Our entire family was so saddened to hear about Chetty. A very close friend; as well as one of the most respected men in the entire community, as well as region. I personally knew Chetty many years ago, sharing jokes, and just having fun together. Chetty was a man that made you learn the "REAL WORLD" at a very young age, because of his serious side. Chetty always was admired by everyone, for his loyal concern for the beautiful community. When needed, Chetty was always there. I remember still today, on a Saturday, that we always opened until about 2 o'clock for processing scrap iron for Lukens Steel Company. We always filled any order that Lukens Steel had received via our yard. As you well know, our machinery was going all day long, to produce tonage for Lukens, when the open hearths or electric furnaces got hungry. We were and still are direct processors for Lukens, ever since Harry Riebman, and Mr. Samuel and Mrs. Harriet Houston founded Lukens. Our families were very good friends, and like Chetty will always be friends. Well our beloved friend, you are now in a very special place in heaven now. You are with God and his Angels to look after you now. May God Bless you and your entire family in this delicate time of need. Goodbye, our friend. Elliot Riebman & Family

Words will never convey the message of the thoughts which embrace my mind. I am shocked to have learned of the passing of a LEGEND. My thoughts, prayers and heart are with Station 44's elite fire department, but also with all of the mutual aid departments, family and friends. I've had the pleasure of knowing Chetty as a friend and firefighter for many years and will only have kind memories to share. You will surely be missed, Chester!!! God bless you my friend!

I am deeply saddened by Chetty's passing. But, I know he is in the better place. I admired him and all that choose to be volunteers that can walk into a burning building a save a life of someone they do not even know. I know that I am blessed to have spent time with his son. "Chetty" will be the next in line for an amazing journey. I pray for peace in the family. God Bless to all.

"FREEBIRD," you got the send off you deserved. Rest in Peace. I'd like to thank the Westwood Fire Company for putting together an amazing send off for my Uncle Chetty. Although it was a sad day, the show of unity was very delightful. To all the other firefighters who attended, thank you very much for making my Uncle's day the best that it could be. He was a great person who we will all miss very much.

Hey there, just wanted to send my condolences to everyone at Station 44 in the passing of Chetty Taylor. Got to know Chetty while active with Station 38. It's hard to say goodbye to a brother firefighter, especially when they're the same kind of person Chetty was.

What a very nice and emotional tribute to Chetty Taylor. I am sure he would have been very proud! Salutations to all members of Station 44 who have battled the Coatesville fires and the adverse weather conditions to pay tribute to a very dedicated member. Of all.... Chetty would have appreciated that despite snow, sleet, rain and cold.... emergency responders get the job done regardless of conditions! He was certainly one who faced these conditions many, many times.

I am shocked and extremely saddened to hear of ol' Chet's passing. He truly was a great person both in and out of the Fire Department. I still remember his Federal Q on his Ford pickup going down Route 30 business screaming to a call.

About 30 years ago, Chetty came to our house to fix a broken water pipe. We were discussing what had to be done and I looked down only to see Chetty's shoe laces on fire!! I was ready to douse him with water when he nonchalantly bent down and put the fire out with a few drops of his coffee!!

We will always remember the smile and the humor. He was a good man and will be greatly missed for a long, long time.
