Accokeek VFD Mourns the Loss of life Member Donnie Busl Jr.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014  It is with very heavy hearts that the members of Accokeek Volunteer Fire Department announce the passing of one of our members, Donnie Busl. Donnie was a dedicated member of the Accokeek Volunteer Fire Department for many years. He was a member of the Prince Georges County Volunteer Firemen’s Association for even longer. Donnie was a great father, son, brother, mentor, friend and a great man. He taught a lot of us at Accokeek most of what we know about the fire service. He made us laugh, he made us cry and in the last year of his life, he taught us that life is a precious gift and shouldn't be taken for granted. Donnie’s viewings will be on Monday, May 19th from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM at the Accokeek Activity Hall; another viewing will be from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM with Fire Department Prayers beginning at 7:00 PM.
