  • It is with great sadness that the officers and members of the Yardley-Makefield Fire Company announce the passing of Life Member Gene Cadwallader. Gene has been a member since 1961 serving in many capacities. Gene was president of the fire company from 1967 - 1972, treasurer for 40 years and become a life member in 1999. Gene was a mentor to many of us in the fire company whether it was on the fire ground, building a fire apparatus, handling the business side, or just a quiet chat on Sunday morning at the station. Gene did many things to make this company what it is today, and we are so grateful for having him as a member of our family. Even though he is gone we all know Gene will be looking over us and whispering his wisdom to us still from above. We love you Gene and will always have a seat at the round table for you.
