Upper Montgomery County VFD

The officers and members of the Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Department offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of past member J. Robert Lillard, Jr.

Mr. Lillard was a member of the department in the 1950’s and early 60’s, obtaining the rank of Captain during his service. He was often responsible for new member drivers training and also ran the nickel pitch at the departments annual carnival. He was a pillar in the community throughout his life as seen below in his obituary from Hilton Funeral Home.

Thank you for your service Mr. Lillard, we will deeply miss your waves as we travel through the town of Barnesville.

December 8, 2017
J. Robert Lillard, Jr., 86, of Barnesville, passed away Friday, December 8, 2017, at Frederick Memorial Hospital, with family and friends by his side. He was the devoted husband of Margery S. Lillard, the love of his life, who predeceased him October 19, 2006.
Born in Barnesville, on January 4, 1931, he was the son of the late J. Robert Lillard, Sr., and Stella Viola (Renn) Lillard. Bob or “Bobby” was proud to tell you that he was “bred, born, and raised” in the house that he lived in. He attended the two-room school in Barneville, through the 3rd grade, when the school was closed and students transferred to Poolesville. He was a 1949 graduate of Poolesville High School. For a summer during his high school years, he worked for the family trucking and paving business, J.R. Lillard and Son. After high school, he worked as a mechanic for Call Carl, followed by Rockmont Chevrolet, as a front-end mechanic. He also was a partnership owner of Poolesville Feed and Supply and a salesman for Snap-On Tools. He retired from the National Institute of Health, as a Computer Supervisor, with the Division of Research & Grants. During retirement, he operated a sign and engraving business, from home, and drove the school bus for the Barnesville School.
He was a veteran of the Korean War, serving in the 7th Army Signal Corp, as a teletype operator, in Stuttgart, Germany. He was a former member of the Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Department. He was a life-long and active member of Barnesville Baptist Church, where he served as Trustee, usher, and teller. He served as the Chairman of Barnesville’s Zoning Committee for 40 years and enthusiastically served on the committee to restore Barnesville’s Town Hall to its historic beauty. He was a member of the Fervency Lodge 200, AF&AM, Point of Rocks, where he was a past Worshipful Master. He had been an active square dancer, participating with numerous local clubs in the area.
Bob’s lifetime hobby was antique cars. While he owned numerous makes, models, and years, the heart and soul of his collection was always a Model T. During his lifetime, he owned a C cab truck, a 1927 Touring, a 1913 Depot Hack, and a 1922 Touring. He was most proud of his trip, in 1984, with Margery and Jan, in his 1913 Depot Hack, from Barnesville, to New York City, to Seattle, Washington, back to Barnesville, with 30 other Model T’ers, retracing a race won by a Model T in 1909. He and Margery traveled extensively in their antique cars, locally and all across the nation, participating in club tours and trips on their own. He was a life member of the Antique Automobile Club of America, a charter member of the Sugarloaf Mountain Region Chapter of the AACA; a member of the Model T Ford Club International, charter member of the Heart of Maryland Chapter of the MTFCI, member of the Nation’s Capital Chapter of MTFCI; member of the Model T Ford Club of America, charter member of the Blue and Grey Chapter of MTFCA; member of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America; former member of the Packard, Oldsmobile, Edsel, and Corvair owners clubs.
He is survived by his loving daughter Janita Lillard Burdette and husband, Gary. He is also survived by his sister, Rebecca Lillard Umstead; niece, Barbara Umstead Hamilton and husband Joseph; nephews James Renn Lillard and wife Sharon, and Gary Trent Lillard and wife Krista, as well as numerous great-nieces, great-nephews, and cousins.
He was predeceased by his sister, Mary Ellen Lillard, and brother, Ernest “Tip” Renn Lillard, as well as nephew, Stanley Leo Umstead.
Friends and family may call from 10:00 a.m., until time of services at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, December 16, at Barnesville Baptist Church, 17917 Barnesville Road, Barnesville. Internment will follow a fellowship luncheon at St. Mary’s Catholic Church Pavilion (Barnesville), in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Frederick. Antique car friends are encouraged to drive their vehicles.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to Barnesville Baptist Church, P. O. Box 69, Barnesville, MD 20838.
