It is with the deepest of regret, that the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department, Incorporated, announces the passing of former Fire Chief and Life Member Harry "Buck" Davis. He passed at approximately 1230 hours this date after a long battle with his health. "Buck", as he was known to his family and friends, joined the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department just after it's inception in the mid-1950's. He would end-up holding the rank of Fire Chief with the department twice during his tenure. Throughout his 50 plus years of service, he remained extremely active with the KVFD, as well as the Prince George's County Fire Service. He was instrumental in providing service to his fellow Kentland Volunteers and the community as the young department came into its own. Paving the way for the generations that came to follow. He was also a fixture at nearly every County Fireman's Association meeting and a delegate for his home department at the yearly Maryland State Fireman's Association Convention. He was truly an inspiration to the fire service and will be sorely missed. The Officers and Membership of the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department, Incorporated ask that you keep all of Mr. Davis's family/friends in your thoughts and prayers.
