It is with my deepest sympathy and sadness to announce the passing of Life Member Barry Johnson.
Barry passed away peacefully in his sleep last evening around 10pm last night in the presence of his immediate family, his wife Cynthia, and his daughter Jessica, and son.
Late last night, Barry's body was taken to John's Hopkin's in Baltimore to have his tumors and affected organs donated to the John Hopkin's Pancreatic Research. (Even post mortum, the man wanted to save lives).
One of Barry's requests was to be escorted to John's Hopkins via Ambulance 49. Life Member Scott Globerman retrieved the ambulance from quarters near midnight last night and escorted the motorcade to Baltimore with Jess on board.
The family is preparing memorial service details at this time. LVRS will work with the family to accomplish the memorial.
We will keep people posted via the website and the old timer's group on FD.
The family is asking for no calls, and extended privacy while they settle all of the items that need to be completed.
