There is a social media event honoring Joey’s memory on the 20th.  If you’d like, you can show your support by signing up in event’s facebook page, here.

Joey was a very significant contributor to the department and the community, and was loved by many.  He has been sorely missed during the past 25 years.

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014


The Darien Fire Department mourns the passing of 79-year member Robert Alexander who passed away yesterday, April 14, 2014.

Bob was the oldest standing member of the department, having joined in 1935.  He was a past-President, Trustee, and Building Committee Member, responsible for the design and construction of the firehouse that has served us extremely well since 1964.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Helen.

A graveside service will be held at Spring Grove Cemetery, 41 Hecker Avenue, Darien on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 1:45 PM.  His obituary can be seen here.
