It is with
deep regret and a heavy heart that I report that
Firefighter Karl Owings died today at 6:15pm in a
Hospital. Firefighter Owings joined
the Junction Fire Department
in 2009 and has
served the Department as a faithful member since
that time. Karl loved serving his community and
spent many hours working to
assure the Departments Apparatus
maintained and took great pride in helping to build
of the Departments Brush Engines, earning
the Fire Fighter of the Year
Award in 2011. Karl
often volunteered to pull additional shifts at some
of our larger incidents.
I ask that
you keep Karl’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
