Heimburg on Friday morning, Sep 28, 2018.  Bob passed away peacefully at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center while under doctor's care for recent illnesses.  Bob's service to the New Milford Fire Department, the community of New Milford and his Country as a sergeant in the US Army during the Korean Conflict left indelible marks which helped make this world a better place.  Bob is survived by his loving wife Eleanor and two children, son Keith (former NMFD and Long Valley Fire Chief) and daughter Karen (former Captain of NMVAC).  Thanks to all who comforted Bob during his recent infirmary.  He will be sorely missed.
