Ridge, MD  – Ridge Volunteer Fire Department regrets to announce the death of past Lieutenant Joseph (Joey) F. Angle. Joey passed away December 26, 2019 at his home in Calvert County. Joey joined RVFD on October 13, 1987. He was a member from 1987 to 1993 and held the position of Lieutenant in 1992. Joey resigned in 1994 and moved to Calvert County with his wife, Rose.

Joey had a passion for firefighting. He joined Seat Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department, located in PG County MD in 1993 where he later became Chief. Chief Angle never forgot his “roots” in Ridge. He had Seat Pleasant bring a pumper down to the SMVFA parade held in Ridge in 1998 and would often be seen attending our annual carnival. Joey served Seat Pleasant VFD until 2007 when he transferred to Kentland VFD in PG County MD.

Joey proudly served as a Prince George’s County police officer for the past 11 years. Joey also served with the Ridge Volunteer Rescue Squad from 1987 to 1991. He is survived by his wife and son. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Graveside services will be held at St. Michael’s Cemetery, Thursday January 2, 2020 at 11AM. Members of Ridge VFD will be Honorary Pallbearers.
