Gone too Soon

**Update**

On Saturday, November 15, please join us and share your memories of Bob Huey. We will be hosting a memorial service from 1pm-3pm at Station 57. All friends, family, and departments are welcome to attend.

Any questions please contact Chief 57 or PM through Facebook.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Firefighter Bob Huey. Bob was an integral part of Milford Township Volunteer Fire Department for the past 11 years serving as our President, Safety Officer, a Firefighter and a Chauffeur. More than a firefighter, Bob was also a great leader, mentor, and role model around the station. He always had a contagious smile on his face and could tell stories with so much detail it seemed as if it were yesterday. Every Christmas Eve we would chauffeur Santa around town to drop off gifts to the local children. Bob has played Santa numerous years and has even responded to a fire call dressed as Santa during the event.

Well respected in Bucks County's fire service along with Northern Bucks Wildland team, Bob took countless training classes during his fire career to improve not only his skills but those of his brothers around him.

Gone too Soon- 221

*We will update our Facebook and this page with further details when they become available.
