Resided in Aberdeen, MD
It is with deep regret and a heavy heart that the Aberdeen Fire Department, INC. announces the untimely passing of active lifetime member and Board Director Al Severn Jr. on Wednesday, April 24th, 2013.
He first joined the department in 1975 and has been a member for over 37 years. He has served on the Board of Directors for the past several years and has previously served as a fire line officer, both as a Captain and Lieutenant. Mr. Severn was well known for his always positive attitude and outlook on life and always had a smile. He clearly demonstrated what it means to be a true volunteer with his passion, commitment and dedication. He often helped others with providing guidance and wisdom and always offered interesting history of both the city of Aberdeen and the Aberdeen Fire Department. He has truly served the Aberdeen Fire Department well and will sorely be missed. May he rest in peace.
We ask that you keep the Severn family in your thoughts and prayers during this very emotional and hard time. The visitation and funeral service details are provided below.

He and his wife spent many months at the Outer Banks and enjoyed several cruises and a trip to Portugal, where they created many wonderful memories. One of Jim’s greatest loves was his four grandchildren, with whom he always looked forward to spending time. Jim was a genuinely happy guy who loved to smile and enjoy life.
