It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hubert Gayton Caswell, of Bobcaygeon, passed away on Saturday, April 4, 2020, at the age of 86. Bert’s career in the Fire Service began with his engagement with Forest Hill Village Fire and Police Department to work on their radios, and in 1955 he joined Forest Hill Fire Department. Later he was amalgamated into the Toronto Fire Department as a Fireman for 38 years mostly at Stn#29 , with the last four years at Stn#35 on the Fire Boat. Bert loved helping people and always was quick to selflessly serve and assist others with respect, kindness and humour. Bert was from Granville Ferry/Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Beloved husband of Joan (nee Liscombe) of 65 years. Loving father of Frank (Diane) and Edward. Adored Grandpa to Jacalyn, Joanne, Carly and Christine.
