Brian Purcell, retired Boston Firefighter, dies in Florida

FLORIDA — My friend Brian Purcell, who retired from the Boston Fire Department about 10 years ago, died recently in Florida.

A decorated member of the BFD, Brian spent most of his career with Engine 42 in Roxbury. He later was an aide to the District 3 chief.

Arrangements are being made by John J. O’Connor & Son Funeral Home. We’ll update our posts when we receive more information. — Bill
