Halligan Pierce Newcomb
Birth: Oct. 24, 1996
Fayetteville
Cumberland County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 4, 2008
Fayetteville
Cumberland County
North Carolina, USA

LaFayette Village Fire Department Mascot from 1997-2004.

Halligan whose record had been 'spotless'; was forced to retire after nine years of dedicated service with the Lafayette Village fire station.
The city of Fayetteville's annexation forced this K-9 into early retirement. It is their policy to not allow animals at stations, stating liability issues.
This dalmation had been coming to the fire station since he was just a pup. He also visited several local schools, receiving many letters and cards of thanks from the children and staff.
The dedication he had, showed when the alarm sounded; as he was normally the first one in the truck and never left his seat during the fighting of a fire.
Halligan, never quite adjusted to his retirement and later developed high blood pressure.
This loyal, good natured firedog, passed quietly in his sleep and is sadly missed by all those whose lives he touched.

Sponsorship of this memorial in honor of owner/firefighter Lt. F. Newcomb.
