A 24-year-old member of the Brandy Station Volunteer Fire Department Company 2 died Saturday at the University of Virginia Medical Center following injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash in Culpeper Thursday afternoon. Geoff Green, of Culpeper, was traveling north on Ira Hoffman Lane on his 2004 Yamaha motorcycle when a southbound 2012 Toyota Camry turned left in front of him to go onto Burgandine Avenue around 5:17 p.m., according to a press release from the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office. Green’s uncle, Robert Wayne Green, confirmed his passing Saturday afternoon. Green applied his brakes, according to the release, but could not avoid striking the front passenger side of the Camry. Green was flown by helicopter from the scene to UVa where he remained in intensive care since Thursday. A spokesperson from Co. 2 confirmed Saturday that Green was an active volunteer. The driver of the Camry, Mark Klein, 50, of Culpeper, was not injured in the crash. He was charged with failure to yield the right of way. Green was wearing a helmet, according to Saturday’s release by the CCSO.

 A Fireman's Tribute
Brothers, when you weep for me
Remember that it was meant to be.
Lay me down and when you leave
Remember I'll be at your sleeve.
In every dark and choking hall
I'll be there as you slowly crawl.
On every roof in driving snow
I'll hold your coat and you will know.
In hot cellars in searing heat
At windows where a gate you meet
In closets where young children hide
You know I'll be at your side.
The house from which I now respond
Is over staffed with heroes gone.
Men who answered one last bell
Did the job and did it well.
As fire men we understand
That death's a card dealt in our hand.
A card we hope we never play
But one we hold there anyway.
That card is something we ignore
As we crawl across a weakened floor.
For we know that we're the only prayer
For anyone that might be there.
So remember as you wipe your tears
The joy I know throughout the years.
As I did the job I loved to do
I pray that thought will see you through.
