Memorial



This web site is dedicated to all deceased members of
Liberty Hose Company No. 2 so that we will not forget their
contributions to our company and our community.




Every year on the first Sunday in May, Liberty Hose Company No. 2 holds a memorial service for our deceased members.  Each year the service is held in a different church located in Lykens Borough.  The service is held as part of the regular church service.  Please join us for the service.  Contact the company chaplain or any member to inquire where the next service will be held.


Page Under Construction:
A complete list of deceased members is still being compiled.  We are still researching the membership records of members shown on this page.  In some cases we may have a death date for a member who is shown here without one, which will be added here as the research continues.  In other cases we will be adding and/or removing names from this list.  (Until this message is removed, you really shouldn't believe anything you read here!)  It is believed that this project will take quite some time to complete.  Your patience is appreciated and, hopefully, will be rewarded with a complete interactive list of members.
