The Passing Of Dutchess County Sheriff Adrian “Butch” Anderson
September 29, 2021

The Pleasant Valley Fire District joins many other fire districts, departments and companies in Dutchess County and across New York State in sending our deepest sympathies to the family of Dutchess County Sheriff Adrian “Butch” Anderson as well as condolences to the entire Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff was a big supporter of the volunteer firefighters of Dutchess County and was always willing to provide help whenever we needed anything.

In December of 2020, the Pleasant Valley Fire District was honored to partake in an enormous celebration of Butch’s storied 50 + year career in law enforcement including a parade that escorted the sheriff from Pawling to his office in Poughkeepsie.

He lived by the motto, "treat others the way you want to be treated.” Rest in peace sir and thank you for your service.
