Former AFAA President Passes Away


Larry Neibauer, a long-standing fire alarm industry representative and past president and executive director of the Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA), died June 24. He was 68.

Neibauer had been in critical condition for several weeks before passing away. According to a June 1 newsletter posted by a Web site for engineering technicians, Neibauer had recently recovered from surgery and was not doing well.
