Passing of Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad Life Active Member Robert W. (“Bobby”) Gollan

The Officers and Members of the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad (B-CCRS) regretfully announce the death of Robert W. (“Bobby”) Gollan. He passed away early this morning in Mt. Airy, Maryland while in hospice care.

At the time of his passing, Bobby was a Life Active Member. His fifty-three years of service with B-CCRS includes time as Deputy Chief and many line officer positions. He served with compassion and extreme dedication to the ideals of the Rescue Squad, the greater fire and rescue service, and the community. To that end, he also served with distinction as a volunteer leader and member in the Cabin John Volunteer Fire Department and Kensington Volunteer Fire Department.

Bobby leaves his son, Bobby Jr., his mother, Evelyn Gollan, and 2 sisters, Barbara and Sandy.

A viewing will be held at Pumphrey’s Funeral Home in Bethesda. A fire department memorial funeral service will be held at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad in the Rose-Anastasi Room. An internment will follow at Parklawn Cemetery in Rockville. We anticipate the family will authorize the release of confirmed dates and times for the scheduled events to be made public late Sunday, May 19, 2012.

Authority: President Kenneth Yazge
Fire/Rescue Chief Edward G. Sherburne
Past President George Giebel (Family Liaison)
Alumni President Kenneth Holden
