WALLINGTON - Friends and family are mourning a firefighter from Wallington who was killed in a motorcycle crash over the weekend.

Firefighter Frank Stetz died Saturday night when his motorcycle crashed into a van on the Garden State Parkway. The 17-year-old driver of the van was charged with driving while intoxicated.

Fellow firefighter and friend Joey Ivanicki says that he is truly going to miss Stetz.

“It's going to take a long time…Someone knocks on the door, you think it's him.  Because he's there every day, he stops over to see the kids,” Ivanicki says.

Funeral services are expected to be held this weekend.
