Farewell to our Friend Bob Hoyer
Bob Hoyer, our friend and fellow member since 2006, passed away October 5, 2014, following an episode of cardiac arrest at his home. He was 67. Bob was one of our top responders for several years
after first joining as a driver and first responder. He won our EMS Responder of the Year at the annual Overlook Dinner in 2007. Bob's wife, Bernadette, retired last year after teaching at
Brunner Elementary school for many years. Our thoughts are with Bernie and the family during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations in Bob's memory to the Fanwood Rescue Squad.
