Alderman Bill Robertson Remembered

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Today more than a hundred people, including past and present mayors are remembering the life of 14th Ward Alderman Bill Robertson, our city's former fire chief of 17 years.

Robertson lost his battle with cancer over the weekend, and today he was honored for more than 30 years of service to our community at Zion Lutheran Church.

Robertson retired as chief in 2008. Members of the Rockford Fire Department say he will be missed, considering he was seen as a mentor to emergency responders. Robertson’s family says while he wasn't serving our community, he was a loving father and grandpa.
