James G. Hill, Sr.

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Daingerfield, TX

Branch of Service: Firefighter

Rank: Safety Officer

My father retired in 1987 after driving a truck for 20 plus years only to take up a new job. He was a member of the Daingerfield VFD for 12 yrs. He held numerous titles over that time. He was a certified EMT and certified firefighter. He died while fighting a fire in Lone Star, TX while serving with the Daingerfield VFD.

My father had a heart for giving and caring that most people didn’t see. He was the first most times to volunteer and usually the last to stop helping and go home.

Daddy left a burning curiosity in myself and my children for service and sharing. I myself was an EMT/Firefighter, his grandson is also a certified Firefighter.

Age: 65

Date of Death: November 09, 2000
