A vibrant assortment of people came together to give their last respects to Alburtis Mayor Robert Mader. Mader was active in the Alburtis community and was the former Chief of the Alburtis Fire Department and current member and Captain of the Alburtis Fire Company Fire Police.

His casket was carried through Alburtis one last time via a procession of firetrucks, before finally being interred at Lehigh Zion Cemetery. At the interment ceremony a 21-gun salute was fired and one final commemorative call was made through the fire company's radio in honor of Mayor Mader.
Members all throughout the community, as well as fellow fire fighters from both Alburtis and beyond, came to pay thier respects to a man who truly was a foundation of the community in which he served.
