By Past Chief Charles Miedzinski (CP)
May 26, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Active Member/Firefighter George "Walter" Taylor. Walter passed away yesterday with his family by his side after a heroic battle with cancer.
Walter joined Hollywood VFD in February of 2004 and became an active member a year later. Walter was turned over to drive everything in the Station quickly and became a huge asset to the Department. Because of this, he was one of the top runners who was known for getting the rigs on the street each night. Walter received numerous top responder awards throughout the years at Hollywood. Along with top responder awards, Walter received a Silver Medal of Valor in 2016 for assisting a down firefighter out of a house fire in Calvert County and several unit citations. Walter held the positions of Lieutenant, Captain, Safety Officer, and Chief Engineer during his time at Hollywood. Walter was also a Life Member/Safety Officer with the Solomons Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department and a Career Firefighter/Inspector with the Naval District of Washington Patuxent River Battalion.
The Officers and the Members of the Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department wish to send our condolences to the Taylor family and thank them for allowing Walter to be a part of our family. Walter's legacy will continue and live on with his children each and every day.
Arrangements for Firefighter George "Walter" Taylor will be posted at a later date. Any questions should be directed to Chief Brady at chief7@hvfd7.com
