Commissioner Robert "Bob" Pontius
1943-2022

 

 

The fire service is mourning the loss of a pillar in our community. Saturday November 12, Bob Pontius passed away peacefully.

In October of 1999, Bob was appointed to the Board of Fire Commissioners for Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue and served his community with pride until his recent passing. As a Board member for Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue, he served on various committees and as the Board Chair. During his tenure, he facilitated numerous innovations and accomplishments. As a Fire Commissioner, he was the President of the Jefferson County Fire Commissioners and Secretaries Association, he sat on the Facilities and Apparatus Committee as well as the JeffCom Board. 

He is well known throughout the county in agriculture related associations, such as the Fair Board.  It was not uncommon to see Bob throughout the week at the Road House in Port Townsend, enjoying  the afternoon with this friends. He cared deeply for our community and was a fixture in many social circles; he was a true public servant. Bob has three children and several grandchildren whom he loved dearly.
