BERWYN, PA - With heavy hearts, the members of the Berwyn Fire Company regret to announce the passing of Life Member William E. Dickinson. Bill or Nutzy as we called him around the firehouse joined the Company at the age of 16 as a Conestoga High School Sophomore in 1969. Bill was an active member alongside his father, the late Franklin (Frank) T. Dickinson, Jr., who also attained life member status during his tenure with the Company.

Bill served as an active member in the roles of firefighter and engineer for 31 years in faithful volunteer service to the residents of Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships. One of the last major fires he responded to was the multi-alarm fire at the Gateway Shopping Center in October 1998.

As a volunteer Bill represented the best part of what it means to serve others. The Company sends it deepest condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.

Relatives and friends may call on Sat. Oct. 20, 2018 from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. at Alleva Funeral Home: 1724 East Lancaster Ave. Paoli, PA. A Funeral Service will begin at 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Bills honor to: Berwyn Fire Company: 23 Bridge Ave, Berwyn PA 19312 or Fox Chase Cancer Center: 333 Cottman Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19111.
