We are sad to announce that on February 7, 2021, George Keller Jr. of Boyertown, Pennsylvania, passed away. Affectionately known as Rabbit he was a long time member of the Hooks and wanted to be involved with Boyertown Area Fire & Rescue after the merger of the three Boyertown area fire companies in 2014. Our Company granted Rabbit Life Membership with BAF&R due to his many years of service with Friendship Hook & Ladder and the dedication of Ladder 15 in George’s name remains on Ladder 95 and will remain in his memory until the Ladder is replaced.
Many of you probably saw Rabbit and didn’t know who he was as Rabbit could be seen many days during the summer sitting on the front bumper of the Ladder truck with the door open watching traffic go by on S Reading Avenue.
He will be missed.
