Roll of Honor

Edgar A. Cowart

Submitted by his Daughter

My father worked for the Jacksonville Fire Dept. for 33 years. My father loved his job very much. He was awarded twice for the Fireman of the Year Award. Prior to becoming a Firefighter‚ he served in the U.S. Navy to defend his country. He was also awarded from the American Legend for rescuing 2 young boys from a forest fire.

He was a loving and devoted husband and father. He left behind Mary Cowart – Wife‚ Jody & Billy Cowart – Sons and Bettie Samford -Daughter.

My Father is truly missed.

This firefighter line of duty fatality occurred before the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial was built in Emmitsburg, Maryland. While this firefighter has not been officially honored at the Memorial site, there are plans to do so when resources are available.
