RIP George Reese

RIP George Reese

The pic is of George Reese and Larry Reed, George is on the bottom. It was taken in 1986, long before I got on the department (I got on in 95). The picture was taken by B/C Frank Saia, it won several photo contests and a pulitzer, I heard those were prety big. We buried George today, he lost his battle with cancer. He was a good guy and will be missed.

He always smoked a lot and we always joked that all he needed was a smoke.

Fire Story

This was the 2nd large fire of the day, the two men in the pic were working a 2 1/2" line. Back then they did not wear airpacks and the two men had eaten a lot of smoke. George finally collapsed from exhaustion, what the pic does not show, is how hot it was that day.

I am sure you could have done it, I will tell you, the summer is worse than the winter. Having said that, it is the best job I ever had and I can;t think of doing anything else.

Condolences

On the loss of your comrade. Deaths like that, through something as insidious as cancer, diminish us all.
