Seattle, Washington | On January 5, 1995, an arson fire claimed the lives of four Seattle Firefighters, Lt. Walter Kilgore, Lt. Greg Shoemaker, Firefighters James Brown and Randy Terlicker in what would be one of the worst fires in history.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET, is a tribute to all those in Public Safety who have died in the Line of Duty remembering their Legacy, Commitment, Dedication and Service. Though GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN is a way we remember who they were here on Earth. Their memory still lives on in our hearts and souls.
This year marks the 20th Year Anniversary of their Lives Lost and remembrance of these four Heroes will be celebrated on Monday, January 5th in Occidental Park at 0900 Hours. This is also the same place where four statues were created in their Memory and dedicated all the men and women whom have died in the Line of Duty.
The Seattle’s Bravest Charity and The Walter Kilgore Honor Guard was created from these tragedies and are dedicated to their Memory.
All are Invited to Support your Fire Service Community, their Families and remembering their Lives.
