Thomas ‘Todd’ Lange began his career in the Pittsfield Fire Department on July 29, 1974, after serving four years in the Marine Corps, including one year in Vietnam. He proudly served the city of Pittsfield for 32 years. He was an exceptional firefighter, proud to serve with his brothers.
When HEP C took him off the floor, and into the inspection bureau, he immersed himself in children’s fire education programs, the care of the elderly and the hoarding problem in the city. He befriended many of the poor, bringing food and checking on them on his off hours.
Todd was a simple man who took nothing for granted. He judged no one and lived each day to the fullest. He was an avid golfer and a sports fanatic, sharing all of this with his father, brothers, and sons. He loved spending time with his family and traveling with his wife, Pam. He was a true friend, a family man, a husband most envied and a wonderful son, brother, father, and grandfather. The loves and lights of his life were his granddaughters, Maren and Emmy.
He will always be forever in our hearts.
