Enders Fire Company & Rescue Squad Honored Two Long-Time Volunteers

In January, the John H. Enders Fire Company & Rescue Squad honored two long-time volunteers who have given much of their time and resources to Enders and their Clarke County community. Jimmy Crim has been a volunteer for 65 years. He joined the fire company when he was 16-years old, serving as a firefighter and later for several years as fire lieutenant. His wife Faye has also supported Enders, having joined its Ladies Auxiliary in 1959. Standing with the Crims in the photo are (from left) Enders President Sam Miller, Chief J.C. Blaylock, and Board member Chris Shipe. Mr. and Mrs. Crim continue to help with many John H. Enders Fire & Rescue Squad
fundraising events.

Reginald “Reggie” Shirley, president of Enders & Shirley Funeral Homes & Crematory, has responded to many ambulance calls in Berryville and Clarke County over the decades. He continues to be dedicated to and supportive of the fire company. The Shirley family is descended from John H. Enders, who moved to Berryville in 1892, operated the  John H. Enders Funeral Home and, in 1900, helped establish the Berryville Fire Department. Seated with Mr. Shirley are Enders President Sam Miller and Chief J.C. Blaylock. PHOTOS PROVIDED BY JOHN H.
