Bereavement Announcement Chief Matthew Negedly
with deepest regret and great sorrow that IAFF Local 1365 - Orlando, FL reports
the passing of District Chief Matthew Negedly. Brother Negedly passed away
Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
Negedly is survived by his wife Jill and two children, Luke and Brooke, his
father and mother, George and Irene and brothers Billy, Robert and Steven.
Matthew Negedly was a 17 year member of the Orlando Fire Department. He was
hired in 1999 after previously serving in the Altamonte Springs Fire
Department. He was a former Executive Board Member of Local 1365, a member of
the Orlando Fire Department Pipes and Drums, and a founder of the Orlando Fire
Conference. He was also a developer and lead instructor for the Orlando Fire
Department Officer Development Program.
Negedly had a passion and zeal for the fire service, surpassed by few.
Chief Negedly shared his knowledge and experience with all that he came
in contact. In addition to his leadership at OFD, he taught at fire conferences
throughout the country. His passion, dedication, and exuberance will be sorely
missed. Chief Negedly was an ardent educator and advocated learning from every
event. We hope to honor him by continuing his legacy of education and training.
