Rich Bartlett was a hell of a man, we came together when my bro and I went into business. Rich was our main supplier and put Tunney Electric on the map.
He was sharp as a tack got us the prices we needed to be competitive and made the company he worked for Davis Electric money also. I'm sitting here in the philippines just stunned, wow I wish I could have had another beer with him. Richy had a special sense of humor

I don't understand dedicating one bay at the fire hall to a fallen fireman. What about all the other good people that have served and are now gone? Do they get a bay to? Very short sighted,must have been a personal agenda?

Rocket man-get a f..king life. You must be the lowest peice of shit ever. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Rich, knew how generous he was to the community as a Volunteer. He was an individual who would never expect a Thank You from no one. Dedicating a bay in Rich's honor was a very small token of appreciation by the Fire Department and Village for all his hard work and time he donated to others. The Fire service and community came together to give Thanks to Rich for what he had accomplished. Imagine what the world would be like if we had more people like Rich instead of selfish assholes like you. A time when his family is mourning, garbage like this has to be available for them to read.

Great! I like your analogy. Now how many more bays are you going to dedicate? Is there room for others who have also given to the community? I think it's an honest question.

I think Julius has a few open bays left.
