The Irvington Fire Department is sad to announce the passing of retired firefighter Robert "Bip" Thombs. During his service to the community Bip served as firefighter for 21 years and was past president of the fire company. Bip will be especially missed on Memorial Day as he was a constant fixture proudly carrying the POW/MIA flag leading he parade.


Robert J. "Bip" Thombs, 67, of Irvington, passed away on March 30, 2017. Born in Yonkers to Wendell and Agnes Thombs. All his life Bip had a passion for the Hudson River. Most recently he was intrigued by the construction of the new TZ Bridge. Sadly, he will not see its completion.

His service as a "jungle grunt" for the US Army, Americal Division in Vietnam, 1969-70 molded his character. Bip was a true hero. He served many years with the Irvington Volunteer Fire Department and retired as a Foreman from the Town of Greenburgh Highway Department in 2005.

Bip is survived by his father, Wendell, daughter Lisa, Partner Debbie, brothers Richard and Michael and four nieces. He is predeceased by his mother Agnes and sister Patty.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Tunnel to Towers foundation at Tunnel2Towers.org, or by check to Tunnel to towers foundation, 2361 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10306

Visiting Sunday, April 2nd 2-4 and 7-9pm with Service at 7:30pm at Edwards-Dowdle Funeral Home, 64 Ashford Ave, Dobbs Ferry.
