As January comes to a close, we have one last birthday for this month. Gary Dye Jr. was born into our fire company and has been a part of our family ever since. Known by many as Dye, Dye Jr or simply Jr.. Gary has worked his way up to Engineer/Driver and as of late, takes care of our Ladder/Tower 2525 that is stationed at Station 25-1 as well as all the other apparatus. He was born on January 30th 1992 in Toms River, NJ and has lived and worked in this area his entire life. Following in his fathers footsteps, he joined Toms River Fire Company 1 and graduated Firefighter Level 1 school in 2010. Before that, he was running around our fire house growing up here and becoming a very important part of our family. He and his wife recently had a beautiful baby girl blessing us once again with little Dye feet running around. Gary works for NJ Natural Gas when he is not at a fire call or taking care of some event at the fire house. Gary has a love for his community and the people that he helps protect each and every day. If you see him in the coming days, do not hesitate to wish him the warmest of Birthday wishes you can muster up.
HAPPY 27th BIRTHDAY
