Celebration of Life

President Matt L. Weber

North Beach Volunteer Fire Department

June 10, 2023 at 11:00 EDT

On June 10, 2023 the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department (8536 Bayside Road, Chesapeake Beach, MD 20732) will host a celebration of life in honor of President Matt Leroy Weber. The celebration will begin at 1100 with officers and members from visiting fire companies asked to form in the apparatus bay at 1045. Following the celebration services, lunch will be served in Bayview Hall along with non-alcoholic refreshments. Events will conclude by 1445.

During a life of dedication to the fire service, President Weber served in three city and county departments over a career spanning four decades. While NBVFD acknowledges his death in the line and is saddened at the loss of a brother and leader, June 10 is intended to be a celebration of Matt’s humor and humanity, as well as his excellence as a firefighter.

The towns of North Beach and Chesapeake Beach are expected to be full and busy that weekend, including the members from three large Fire Departments celebrating President Weber. Parking for the service will begin at 1000 at the American Legion Post 206 (3330 Chesapeake Beach Rd, Chesapeake Beach, MD 20732), with shuttle service available to NBVFD starting at 1015. Parking starts in the front lot, and all cars at the American Legion must be moved by 1500. As needed, additional parking will be available in the neighborhoods to the west and north of NBVFD.

Departments or individuals wanting to make apparatus or parking arrangements, please contact Assistant Chief Bill Freesland at 410-474-6543.
