The Hebron VFD regrets to inform the passing of Life/Active Member/Past Cheif Donald "Don" E. Beach, Sr. Don Beach has served the Hebron VFD as a faithful member for 60 years. At the time of his passing he held the postion of Engineer and in the past has held the positions of Chief, 1st Assistant Chief, 2nd Assistant Chief, Chief Engineer, Assistant Chief Engineer, President, Treasure and Trustee. Anyone that has been in the fire service for any amount of time knew Don and how much love and dedication he had for the Hebron VFD. He considered everyone in the fire service as family and loved to speak of the old days, riding the tail board and driving "his baby" Tanker 508. He was a staple to the Hebron VFD, Hebron Carnival, Town of Hebron and will ALWAYS be remembered for his BINGO announcing days, larger then life smile, energetic personality and catchy little phrases like "A bird can't fly with one wing can he?" or "Just one more".
