  1. David and Jason came to staff our station back in 1997 so we could attend the funerals for our 2 fallen firefighters. Dave was such a nice man. He was so helpful to us during and after our tragedy. I learned to appreciate all the guys at Keokuk. We were able to honor Dave, Jason, and Nate by staffing the Keokuk station during their funerals. The years have certainly flown by. I will not forget these guys.
