Honoring Houston Firefighters

Our beautiful memorial garden at HFRRF is dedicated to the memory of members and to those of us left behind who miss them. HFRRF honors the strength, courage, and humanity of our fallen heroes and their widows.

All the names of our fallen firefighters are engraved on the Wall of Honor. The names of the fallen have been added in chronological order as they have passed, so it may be difficult to find your friends and loved ones. Please click on the “See Memorial Wall” button to find the specific panel locations of each of our fallen heroes.

Gone, but not forgotten.

As we learn of the passing of our members, and with the permission of their families, we maintain the listings of our recently deceased members. The following are lists of active and retired members, as well as the beneficiaries of our members.

The Rescue

Noted local sculptor, David Adickes, designed a memorable bronze statue on a four-sided granite base portraying a firefighter's rescue as he is locked in on a ladder while handing down a baby to another firefighter on the ground. The base of the sculpture memorializes all firefighters lost in the line of duty.

Line of Duty Death Stories

Retired HFD member and volunteer historian Scott Mellott continues to research all HFD Line of Duty Deaths stories. He compiled these stories with help from the City of Houston, numerous firefighters and their families for the annual Houston Firefighters’ Memorial and he has graciously agreed to allow us to share it here. If you have questions, suggestions, or helpful historical information for Scott, please feel free to email him at Thanks to Scott for honoring the memories of these Houston heroes!
