Today we dedicate this post to fond memories of United member and former Grandview and United firefighter Rob Scalice. Rob served the department for a number of years as an active firefighter, including being a supportive member during the merger of the Grandview and Juniata Gap departments that created United.

Our thoughts are with the Scalice and Dougal families as they visit with friends and family and say goodbye to a good guy.

Rob’s son Zach has begun to follow in his Dad’s footsteps as one of our newest volunteer firefighters. Rest easy and carry the watch over us Rob. 🙏🙏🙏

Robert J. “Rob” Scalice, Jr.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Gregg Scalice.
Rob was a 1986 graduate of Huntingdon High School.
He was employed as the Dietary Manager at Cove Forge Behavioral Health and had previously worked with the Department of Corrections at SCI Somerset as the Dietary Manager.
Rob attended Altoona Alliance Church and New Life Church.
He was a former volunteer fireman with Logan Township-United Fire Department and belonged to the Newburg Fire Co. Social Hall. Rob was a longtime baseball and softball coach for his children with Altoona Little League, Federation League and Keystone Girls Softball League.
Friends will be received from 2-5 pm, Saturday, September 10, 2022 at The Stevens Mortuary, Inc., 1421 8th Ave., Altoona, Pa. 16602, where a memorial service will immediately follow at 5:00 pm with Pastor Micah Marshall.

My kids loved seeing Santa riding in the fire truck tonight! Thank you for all you do!
Special thanks to the AAHS media class for helping us get our Fire Prevention message out to all the elementary students this year. Being unable to go into the schools, we had to improvise. The media class recorded and they are going to edit a video of our normal program, so the students can all watch it in class.
