Prince Frederick

RIP Thomas Walter “Tommy” Brady

The Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department regrets to announce the passing of life member Thomas Walter “Tommy” Brady.

Tommy was a pioneer in the fire service for all of Calvert County. In fact, Tommy was not only the first Fire Chief of Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department, but he was a founding and life member of station 6 as well.

There is no doubt he was always willing to share his talents on the fire ground, and beyond.

Tommy’s woodworking skills were tremendous. One of the most recent projects he completed for PFVFD was taking the lead on crafting our department’s Santa sleigh. Tommy brought the entire project home and spent countless hours cutting the sleigh out by hand, sanding and painting the final product. He always took tremendous pride in all his work.

Tommy was also instrumental in the restoration project of one of PFVFD’s original fire engines, 201. This apparatus is now displayed in the downstairs museum of our station and it will be front and center for Tommy’s services this Saturday, October 14, 2023 at Rausch Funeral Home in Owings, Md.

We hope you can join us in remembering Tommy this Saturday from 11 a.m. – 12 noon at Rausch during his visitation. Tommy’s funeral will begin at 12-noon.

All of us will always remember and thank him for his dedication and service to us … and especially to the citizens of Calvert County for 61 years. He will be missed.
