Richard “Pop” Stem Sr.

It with honor and deep sadness that the officers and members announce the passing of Richard “POP” Stem Sr. This afternoon “POP” passed away surrounded by family. Mr. Stem joined the Glyndon Volunteer fire department March 11 1946. He held just about every elected position in the department over his astounding 70 years of active service including President and Captain more notable Pop was the Treasurer for 20 years. Because of him being financially responsible Mr. Stem is the reason why we have many of the things we have today. A great debt of gratitude is owed to the entire Stem family for the sacrifices that they made over the past 70 years of Active service to the GVFD, as well as the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association where he served on many committees.
