Roberta ‘Bert’ Buskey, the widow of our late President Barry Buskey has passed away. Mrs. Buskey was inducted into the company as an Honorary Life Member following the death of her husband. “She was truly a fireman’s wife,” said current Allison President T. Cosgrove Jones. “Bert stood with her husband through his entire fire service career, including the last years of his life as he fought against all odds to re-establish Allison as an active fire company,” he added. Bert last visited Allison when she unveiled Barry’s portrait with her family at her side. The members of Allison have a special place in their heart for the Buskey family who contributed so much to the company.
