 It always saddens me to list any deceased fire fighters name on this web site. 

Line of duty deaths affect me to the deepest core of my soul. 

Since February 14th 2000 (Valentines Day) Houston has 7 Fire Fighters  perish in the Line of Duty. Damion is the 62nd Fire Fighter to die in the line of duty since the HFD went to a paid department in 1895.

To the Hobbs Family:

Your young man was taken away from us way too soon. He spent his time wisely and made many great accomplishments and was not able to full fill his dream of a long successful career a Houston Fire Fighter but in is short time with us-he made us proud!

The Brothers and Sisters of The Houston Fire Department will never  forget him

(I will be adding to this once things calm down a bit)
