Life Member Bill Hayes: February 8, 1946 – April 28, 2016

It is with deep sympathy that the Latham Fire Department announces the sudden passing of Life Member Bill Hayes. Having joined the Department in 1981, Bill will be memorialized for his decades of providing emergency medical services within the Town of Colonie. For the younger Members of the Latham Fire Department that did not have the oppurtunity to know Bill personally, he was a constant for EMS-4 staffing on Friday overnights for many years and provided first response emergency medical care for countless people in need.
Rest easy Sir, the pleasure was all ours.

Services are being held privately by Bill’s family.
