Joseph J. Bichler joined the Marlton Fire Company in 1983. As the company merged with Evesham Fire-Rescue in 1988, Joe became one of the first cross-trained firefighter/EMT members. He served in various roles throughout his 33 years of service, including fire company treasurer, and was a major contributor to the efforts to restore the company’s vintage 1927 Hale pumper. Joe was not only a very active member and responder, but also served as a father figure and mentor to many members.

Joe was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving during the Vietnam War. He was a longtime technician for Physio-Control, servicing products used in emergency services such as AEDs, cardiac monitors, and chest compression machines.

In the early morning hours of October 31, 2016, Joseph Bichler passed away of sudden cardiac arrest in his driveway. He had responded to multiple incidents the day and night before.

Joe is deeply missed by his wife of 43 years, Phyllis; his daughter, Jennifer Pirrotta, and her husband, Jason; his son, Jason Bichler, and his wife, Sally; his son, Justin Bichler, and his wife, Amity; and his daughter, Jordann Bichler. Joe was the dearly loved grandfather of Noah and Sofia Pirrotta and Vera and Forrest Bichler. He is also survived by his brother, Raymond; sister, Dolly; their spouses; and many other loving family, friends, and co-workers.
