It is with great sadness and extremely heavy hearts that the Officers and Members of the Cobb Island Volunteer Fire Department and EMS, Inc. announce the passing of Life Member/Past Vice-President David "Tony" Hayden.

David Anthony Hayden, Sr., known to most as “Tony”, could always be counted on for a constant smile and warm hug. His loving nature was evident in his life of service to his church, his family and his community. A lifelong resident of Southern Maryland, Tony passed away January 6, 2024, at George Washington University Hospital. He was 65 years old.

Tony was born August 4, 1958, in La Plata, Maryland, to the late Robert “Sonny” Hayden, Jr., and Mary Annabelle Stine. He began working at a young age at the Cobb Island Lumber Company, progressing in his career to La Plata Mill & Supply, then to AG Hungerford & Sons. His final job was at Southern Maryland Hospital Center in Clinton.

Tony’s passion for helping others led him to serve with the Cobb Island Volunteer Fire Department. A life member, he served on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of the department. Adding to his commitment to his community, Tony joined the Auxiliary of the department, becoming one of the first men to officially do so. He worked many hours fundraising and providing mutual aid for the benefit of the department, also becoming a life member of the Auxiliary after 15 years.

Tony was a life-long member of Holy Ghost Catholic Church, and his faith led him to become a charter member of the Holy Ghost Church Council of the Knights of Columbus #11484. Again, serving others.
