"The fire service in general has typically been generational so many times," said Ellsworth Fire Chief Richard Tupper.
Tupper said George was one of five city firefighters inured in the Hancock County Courthouse Fire in March of 1930.
Tupper said there were times in the late 1970s when Joe and sons would all respond to a fire, leaving only Joe's wife, Charlotte, to run Fortier Electric on Main Street.
"The electrical world would stop when a fire call came in," Tupper said.

At about 8:40 a.m., an off-duty Ellsworth firefighter reported the blaze to the Ellsworth Fire Department, Chief Richard Tupper said.
Paid on-call firefighter Fred Hersom called in the fire and immediately checked the scene to make sure no one was inside the 428 Bangor Road home near the Dedham town line, Tupper said.
Officials were able to reach a renter who confirmed that there was no one in the house during the time of the fire, Tupper said.
At 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Tupper said that Captain Kevin Kane of the Ellsworth Fire Department was still investigating the cause of the fire.

Ellsworth Fire Chief Richard Tupper said firefighters received a report of a structure fire around 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Tupper said workers at Atlantic Landscape and a neighbor hooked up a garden hose and put water on the fire. Though Tupper did not endorse the move, because it could have put them in danger, he said it did help keep the fire from spreading.
"They were able to successfully hold the fire at bay until crews got there," he said.
Tupper said firefighters made short work of extinguishing the fire and actually spent more time getting smoke out of the building afterward.
He said a pallet of fiberglass screening, a material used to wrap trees while in transport, somehow caught fire.
"We're very thankful for them responding," said Tupper of the mutual aid crews, "because if it had turned into something we would have needed their help and then some."
Tupper said Saturday's fire also offers a chance to remind motorists about Maine's law regarding emergency vehicles.
When a driver sees a fire truck, police cruiser or ambulance with its lights on, he or she needs to pull over and stop and let the vehicle go by. Tupper said drivers sometimes neglect the second part, and he has been in a fire truck responding to a scene while traffic that has pulled over to the right is still driving at 55 or 60 mph in the breakdown lane.
"That makes for a very dangerous situation for everybody," he said.
