    The Journal News has reported that a 33 year veteran of the Spring Valley Fire Department died unexpectedly at the firehouse on January 22.

    John "Bobby" Westervelt, 57, died of cardiac arrest. The article adds that he was found unconscious amid his absence from a roll call, and efforts to revive him at the firehouse and at Good Samaritan Hospital were unsucessful.

    Westervelt is survived by his longtime wife Cathy, and four sons and two daughters.

    Funeral services were held the morning of January 27.
