With deep, abiding sadness, the Chestertown VFC announces the passing of former Firefighter Joseph (Joe) Lawrence Weber. In late Fall, 1980, Joe joined the fire company through our Exploring program, which was a part of the Boy Scouts of America. It was a coed program tailored to introduce young people to a potential career as a firefighter. The fire company was a big part of Joe’s life and hugely important to him. Joe remained active with us for more then a decade, lasting into the early 1990’s.
