It is with deepest regret that the Millville Volunteer Fire Company announces the passing of Life Member Roy Rickards. Rickards, 76, of Frankford, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on December 15, 2023, at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

Roy was extremely instrumental in the history of our company and will be greatly missed. President Hocker stated, “Please keep the family and friends in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days. May they find peace and comfort at this difficult time, May God bless you all.”

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions in Roy’s name to the Millville Volunteer Fire Company, 35554 Atlantic Ave., Millville, DE 19967 or the Brandywine Valley SPCA
