It is with deep regret that the officers and members of the Warrington Township Fire Company announce the death of life member and past Assistant Chief Robert Bell, Sr. Bob officially joined the fire company in 1959 as a juniour firefighter at 13 years of age. However, he was unofficially a member prior to then by being the son of firefighter Bob Bell. Bob was also a past Chief Engineer and worked on numerous truck committees thoughout his years. Bob recently played an instrumental role in getting the fire company's first fire truck, a 1924 Ford Model T, back to us for restoration. We are grateful for the 55 years of service that Bob has given to our community and he will always be our brother. Until we meet again, rest in peace, brother. Bob will be laid to rest on Tuesday, October 28. A link to Bob's obituary is listed below:
