Roll of Honor

Firefighter
Year of Death: 1947

Winston West

John Owens and Winston West were rushing to respond to a fire alarm when their truck collided with a sedan. Both men, volunteers, were thrown from the truck and died. Owens had been an electrician with the City of Mesa, and West was known to his friends at the Fire Department as Owens’ “right-hand man.”

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.
