Robert was a family man with a surviving spouse, three adult children, and four grandchildren. He raised his family in the township of Lovells and could think of no better way than to join the fire department and dedicate himself to protecting the life and property in the Lovells Township that he loved.
Robert joined the Lovells Township Fire Department in 2002 and was certified by the Fire Fighters Training Council on 26 June 2003. Over the next 16 years, Robert went on to obtain his MFR License and was promoted to assistant chief. Robert was well liked by his fellow department members as well as the Lovells community. He put forth a great effort to assure the department was well received in the Lovells community. During his tenure on the department, Robert rarely missed a meeting, training, or an alarm calling him to duty, regardless if the alarm was during work or in the middle of the night. Robert was routinely one of the first on scene and one of the last to leave. He loved the call to duty and his brothers and sisters of the service.
Robert enjoyed coordinating as many surrounding departments as he could to partake in the annual Lovells Bridge Walk Parade, coordinating the support for the Warbler’s Hideaway annual 4th of July fireworks and partaking in the delivery of Thanksgiving meals with our mini-pumper or rescue to community members less fortunate.
Robert J. Stott Jr was a true firefighter in all respects: dedication, service, honor, courage, and valor.
He is missed by many.
