Wheeling Fire Department Remembers 25-year Firefighter

The Wheeling Fire Department honored one of its own Thursday as Lt. Greg Hinzey, 49, of Wheeling, was laid to rest after passing away at home Sunday. Hinzey was a 25-year member of the Wheeling Fire Department, and before that was chief of the Neffs Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio. As part of the funeral procession through the city, the Wheeling Fire Department stationed an honor guard with a large American flag hanging from two ladder trucks as Hinzey’s hearse passed below it on Wheeling Island.
