It is with incredibly heavy hearts that Cabin John Park VFD announce the passing of former Chief and current Board Member Robert “Bobby” Hook. Bobby was an incredibly selfless individual with well over 60 years of service to our department and service to this nation as a Veteran of the Vietnam War. Right up to his passing he served the department as a very active member of our Board of Directors. When he wasn’t at the station he was most likely to be found at Fesco Emergency Sales where he worked as a salesman for many years as well. Between his job and time volunteering, he knew firefighting and emergency medical services inside and out. There will never be enough we can say about his contributions to others in life. He will be deeply missed.

A memorial service will be held Sunday March 15, 2015 12:00 noon with reception to follow. The service will be held at: Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad, 5020 Battery Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Cabin John Park Volunteer Fire Department 8001 River Road, Bethesda, MD 20817.
