Comments : I learned today of the passing of Gilbert Card. He and I, along with his brother Harry, John Lewis, John Dillow, Wayne Davis and Lester Dyer all came on around the same time. Gilbert's heart and soul were always devoted to the LVFD, and he could always be counted on to jump in and do whatever was necessary to support the department and each of us. He was one of a kind, and I am saddened to hear of his passing. Rest in peace, Gil.

Mr. Luedtke,

Please except our appreciation for your many years of service with this fire department.  Gilbert was loved by many including a number of our current younger members.  In the last years of his life, our people would stop by his home on a regular basis to just check on him.  He will be missed by the membership, but never forgotten.

If you find yourself in the Lansdowne area, please stop by and have a cup of coffee with us.  I am sure our members would love to hear some of your stories from back in the day.

With Respect,

Kenneth G. Younger

Fire Captain L.V.F.D.

Comments : Mike My Friend You will be missed deeply by all of us who knew and loved you. Mostly your contagious laughter and good cooking. When the rest of the team gets to heaven you again will be the catcher of the fire house softball team. I know when you get to heaven this is going to be a problem. Not for the fact that you have arrived way too soon but, now there are too many cooks for the bull roast in heaven. You are to soon be reunited with the rest of the cooking staff. Lou Miller and Steven Pertusik. Also Dave Falukner junior cook (sausage pit and sometimes steamed oysters). Don’t let me forget Mike Burg. It’s a good thing Don Mooney and Charlie Torbeck are there to keep order or maybe just stur the pot and do some sampling. You can rest assured that each of those who passed before you will tell you of the errors in your ways. Anyway please try and straighten this out before the rest of us get there, we just want to be able to get some samples of beef ends and sausage. Let your best buddy PaPa Lou that the oyster stew was never the same after he stopped cooking it. With the cigar in his mouth. (we all know what the special ingredients was). Tell everyone hi and we miss them.

Chief,

I am sure Captain Gilbert is looking down from that fire company in the sky and appreciates the message. 

Hope everything is going well with you.  Please stop by if you are in the Lansdowne area.  We have heard so many Jay stories, it would be great to meet you.

With Respect,

Kenneth Younger

Fire Captain

Comments : How could the company afford to buy 2 new pumpers at one time. Back in the 60's when I was a member, we scraped by just to keep the pumpers (1945 and 1960 Seagraves) running. Say hello to "Flash" for me.
