  Mr. JOYCE of Ohio. Madam Speaker, I would like to recognize the 
incredible life and career of Fire Chief Tim Black. Chief Black is 
retiring after 36 years of dedicated service to the City of Macedonia. 
Originally hired as a Parks and Recreation employee, Chief Black rose 
through the ranks and was promoted to Fire Chief in 1995. Chief Black 
facilitated the growth of not only the fire department but of the City 
of Macedonia as a whole, all while protecting and serving the residents 
of Macedonia. In his retirement, Chief Black hopes to spend more time 
camping with his wife, Mary, and his children and grandchildren. I 
applaud and congratulate Fire Chief Tim Black on a life of service and 
dedication to his community. While I am sure he will be missed serving 
in this role, I am certain he will continue to serve Northeast Ohio and 
wish him the best in his retirement.
