Roll of Honor

Firefighter
Year of Death: 1979

David Deary

David Deary fell several hundred feet to his death while attempting to rescue two men who had fallen at Carr Canyon Falls. He was a firefighter and emergency medical technician, and the first Cochise County firefighter to die in the line of duty, but a fellow firefighter said of him that “he died doing what he loved to do” because his life revolved around his profession.
