It is with a heavy heart we notify you of the passing of Richard Beers, Sr. Dick passed away on the evening of October 21st 2019 surrounded by his family.
Dick was a founding member of our corps, first serving on the committee that created PVA. Once PVA was formed, Dick was instrumental in raising the funds to purchase and operate our first ambulance and the base we occupy today. During his membership Dick served as an EMT (one of the first certified EMTs in Monroe County), a driver, a Dispatcher, a trainer, a Director of the Board, and in most leadership roles in our operation. His service with PVA extended 48 years.
His dedicated service to our agency is inspiring, We will sincerely miss his wisdom, engaging presence and funny stories of just how far we have come in our industry. PVA has a long and full history, and today we say goodbye to Dick who was there when it began.
Thank you Mr. Beers, from all of us at Pittsford Volunteer Ambulance- We'll take it from here, friend.
