Chester Basin FD Mourns Passing of Honorary Member


It is with sadness that the CBVFD announces the sudden death of one of their cherished Honorary members. Andrew "Nelson" Eisner died suddenly on March 1st, 2013. He was 83 years young. Nelson was a long time resident of Chester Basin who assisted his local fire department in numerous ways over the years. His mechanical aptitude and workmanship was utilized many times as the firefighters came up against a problem within the hall or with a piece of firefighting equipment. Although his health didn't allow him to contribute as much over the past few years, he rarely missed an opportunity to drop by the fire hall during monthly breakfasts and other events. Nelson's generosity and sunny attitude won many hearts within the fire department and community at large. He will be greatly missed by many of his firefighter family and friends. Rest in peace, Nelson, and may those who took the time to know you, treasure the knowledge and good tidings you bestowed among us.
