My uncle Tom was a good man. He gave up his bed at home to sleep on a old beat up bed at the firehouse. He was captain at station 37 Union Fire Co. in Bensalem PA. He had hours on hours of training. He loved fighting fire with my dad. He was a member for 7 years‚ before he passed away on March 6‚ 1985.
It’s been thirty years brother and the memories of your friendship and leadership are still fresh, as is the pain of your loss. You are well remembered and sorely missed.– Steven Carmichael
I remember when Tommy Gibson died. I was very young. My father was a member of Union Fire Co. then. God bless and RIP, Tommy. FYI, both a road and a bridge are named in his honor:
