Rep. Sheppard honors fallen Monroe Township fire captain at Capitol memorial service
RELEASE|September 10, 2020

State Rep. Jason Sheppard of Temperance today paid tribute to a late Monroe Township firefighter during the Michigan House’s annual Sept. 11 Memorial Service at the Capitol. The ceremony remembers first responders and members of the military from Michigan who died in the line of duty in the past year.

During the event, Sheppard read the name of Monroe Township Fire Department Captain Joseph Liedel, who died Aug. 23 after suffering a medical emergency while on duty in July.

“Captain Liedel served our community for nearly 30 years as a dedicated first responder,” Sheppard said. “He was a hero who dedicated his life to keeping the public safe, and it was an honor to have this opportunity to recognize his service. This is a loss felt deeply not only by Joe Liedel’s family, friends and colleagues, but also our entire community.”
