It is with an extremely heavy heart that our Officers and Members announce the passing of Mr. Joseph M. Wilmer. Mr. Wilmer was the last living founding member of the Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department. It was he and several other gentlemen that in 1946, found a desperate need for a local fire service to serve the Edgewater area. He was a Navy Veteran that served as a radioman in World War II and also the owner of Wilmer Communications that went on to service fire and police radios throughout the county. Thank you, Sir, for everything. Rest peacefully, you will be missed and remembered always.
