It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Firefighter Stewart Stump. Stu was a member of the Department for 53 years and had previously served as Assistant Fire Chief. He selflessly gave of his time, experience, and vast knowledge to the community and will be missed dearly by his brothers and sisters on the Truck Crew.

A memorial service for Firefighter Stump will be held at the Kutztown Fire Co. on Saturday, November 26th at 11:00 a.m. Immediately following the service, a memorial procession of fire apparatus will proceed through town and return to the fire station. Visitation with the family will follow the procession.

To our fellow brothers and sisters in the fire service:

We thank you for your condolences and offers of assistance. An announcement will be made via Berks County Radio tomorrow, Tuesday, November 22nd, at the 0800 and 1800 announcements. Information regarding your agency's wishes to attend will be made available at those times.

We would like to thank everyone who has extended their sympathies to us. We appreciate them and ask that you continue to keep the Stump family in your thoughts and prayers.


**Information for Visiting Departments/Agencies**

Any departments or agencies that have not been contacted by us and wish to attend the memorial service, please call 484-648-0046 and leave your agency name, contact person's name, contact phone number, and if you know how many personnel and which apparatus will be attending. Someone will return your call and provide important information regarding staging of apparatus and personnel placement. If you would prefer, you may send an email to requesting information.

Again, we thank all of you for your condolences and offers of assistance. They are much appreciated and they do help.
