The officers and member of the Harrington Fire Company are saddened to announce the passing of past-President and 50-year member William R. ‘Bobby’ Outten who answered his last alarm on March 17, 2020.

President Outten served the Harrington Fire Company and his community for over 50 active years. President Outten held the offices of Vice-President, President from 1994 to 1997 and Board of Directors. He was also one of the top responding drivers for many years. Along with his dedicated service to the community and fire company, President Outten was also a State Representative, serving the 30th District for 14 years from 2004 to 2018, for the State of Delaware.

Outten was a graduate of Harrington High School and was retired from Delmarva Power. He also served as a Director for the Delaware State Fair. We ask that everyone keep the Outten family in their thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.
