The Leitersburg Volunteer Fire Company sadly announces the passing of Chaplain Robert “Bob” Blair. Bob passed away on June 12, 2013 at the VA Center in Martinsburg, WV at 1830 hours.

Our charter members are few and far between these days. Unfortunately, as they pass on, so do the memories, stories and knowledge they possess. The younger generations will never know what it must have been like to start this organization and watch it grow to the corporation that it is today, with modern equipment sitting ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

Bob had been an active member in the company since its inception in 1956. He served the company and the community throughout the years as a dedicated member, firefighter, driver, officer and friend. Not many people can say that they drove the fire truck on the very first fire call we ever had. Bob continued to serve the community as fire company chaplain, ministering to the needs of countless members and their families.

It is with great sorrow that I make this announcement. We will never have another member that could fill his shoes. Bob, you will be missed. RIP.
