Carl G. (Bud) Fiske Sr., 68, a retired employe of the City of Takoma Park and a member of the Takoma Park Volunteer Fire Department for 36 years, died Thursday at the Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park after a heart attack.
Mr. Fiske, who lived in Takoma Park, joined that city's Public Works Department in 1949. From 1954 to 1960, when he rejoined the department, he and his father operated service stations in Takoma Park and Beltsville. When he retired from the Public Works Department in 1973, he was an automotive equipment supervisor.
In 1943, Mr. Fiske joined the volunteer fire department. He was a superintendent of machinery and a drill instructor and subsequently became a captain. Although remaining an active member until his death, he retired from firefighting in 1964. He was made a life member of the department in 1956.
One of Mr. Fiske's sons and a grandson also are volunteers with the department. His son, Charles J. F., is a lieutenant and his grandson, Charles J. F. II, is a firefighter.
Besides Charles J. F., of the home, and grandson, survivors include his wife, Edna, and a daughter, Marion Brown, both of the home; another daughter, Katherine Borgwardt of Beltsville; another son, Carl G. II, of Waldorf; a sister, Evelyn Elliot of Colusa, Calif., nine other grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Heart Fund, the Diabetes Association, or to the Takoma Park Volunteer Fire Department.
