In Memoriam

Never Forgotten:

This page is dedicated to those members of the California State Firefighters Association (CSFA) our colleagues who contributed so much passion, enthusiasm and pride to their families, department, community and the fire service.  Let us remember the moments we shared, the laughter, the achievements, challenges and difficulties when we remember sharing their passions day in and day out.  They may be gone but never forgotten as we reminisce of such special people, special friends and special times. The memorial list on this web page will be kept yearly and updated once per month.
