George Voorhees


It is with sadness that we were notified of George Voorhees’ passing this week.  I came to know George a number of years ago as he volunteered to help with the Association and then ultimately served on the Board of Directors.

He and our current president Jim Loftus were the “Young Bloods” on the Board and were all full of youthful enthusiasm when it came to the AFAANJ.  I will remember George for his passion for the Fire Industry and our vigorous debates. But mostly I will remember him for his passion for his family. I can’t recall a single conversation with George that didn’t somehow include his children.   The AFAANJ and the Fire Industry are much better for George’s care and dedication. He will be missed by all.
