It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of life member and treasurer Bob Klinefelter. Bob served the department for 37 years. He will be remembered for his kind heart, his contagious smile, and the laughs he brought all of us. Bob was also a member of the Shaler Township Fire Police, and active with Boy Scout Troop 173. Thank you Bob for your service to our community. There will be no funeral service at this time due to the Covid 19 pandemic, but his family hopes to have a celebration of life for him later in 2021.
Please keep Bob’s wife, children, grandchildren, and the rest of his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
