REMEMBERING OUR LITTLE BROTHER

 Aiden T. Riebel, age 7, of Washington Twp., NJ passed away peacefully on Dec. 10, 2014 after a courageous battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. 

Aiden was a kind loving child who loved the Phillies, the shore, and playing on his iPad. He lived his last year to the fullest, travelling to numerous places including Florida, and Maine with his family, doing the things he wanted to do. He was an Honorary Firefighter with the Washington Township Fire Dept., and has received hundreds of emails, dozens of patches, and numerous fire helmets from Fire Departments around the World offering their support. 

Aiden did things on his terms, and in his time frame. Diagnosed with AML at the age of 2, Aiden fought hard to survive, with countless hospital visits, treatments, and doctor visits, not giving up until he had his parents together alone at his side on Wednesday, the way he wanted it. 

He is the beloved son of Christine Ludwig (nee Stier) of Washington Twp., and Paul Riebel (Laura) of Gibbsboro, NJ. Dear brother of Amber Riebel, Haleigh Riebel, Maxwell Ludwig, and Rylie Riebel. Aiden is also survived by: his maternal grandparents Trudy and Charles Stier of Washington Twp.; his paternal grandfather Walter Riebel of Barrington, NJ (grandmother the late Kathleen); numerous aunts, uncles, other relatives, extended family, and countless supportive dear friends.

Viewings will be Tuesday, Dec. 16th 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM and Wednesday, Dec. 17th 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Hope Parish/St. Agnes Church, 701 Little Gloucester Road, Blackwood, Gloucester Twp., NJ 08012, where his Funeral Mass will follow at 11:30 AM on Wednesday. Interment will take place at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Route 47, Washington Township. Contributions in Aiden’s memory may be made to Nemours/Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children, SHANDS HOUSE, 1600 Rockland Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803. Condolences may be share at www.earlefuneralhome.com

   


 

Hurffville-Battalion 3 Firefighter of the Month

 Hurffville-Battalion 3 Firefighter of the Month

Captain Bud Miller was nominated and voted Hurffville-Battalion 3 FF of the Month for November. Bud joined the department in April 1995. Captain Miller is a third generation Firefighter with relatives serving in both Washington Township and Pitman. He thought what they did was honorable and wanted to follow in their footsteps. Captain Miller was also fortunate enough to serve on the front lines with his Dad, Ralph Miller, a Past Chief with Hurffville. Bud is married to his wife Melissa and has two daughters Mia and Charlotte. Bud works with Kennedy Health System as a Facilities Planner. He has been with the health system a total of 14 years.

Captain Miller is assigned to 10-3 Main Station where he currently serves as the Hurffville-Battalion 3 Training Officer. His passion for training and education is second to none. One of his favorite parts about being a Firefighter is "seeing a new technique or tactic 'click' for a new Firefighter". In addition to his responsibilities with the Battalion, Bud is also an active member of the Gloucester County Technical Rescue Team. 

The nomination for Bud as FF of the Month stated "you can sense his deep rooted passion, vast knowledge, and empathy for those in need of our services." Bud is the type of guy that always puts everyone else first. His countless hours spent training other Firefighters and answering their questions at all hours, noon time or 2:30 am, make him a special and irreplaceable part of this Battalion. 

Congratulations Capt Bud Miller on being named November FF of the Month.
