The city of Muncie Tuesday honored the life of a fallen firefighter.

Scott Davis’s family said he always wanted to be a firefighter.  He joined the Yorktown Fire Department when he was nineteen.  He moved to the Muncie department in 2005, almost six years to the day of his death.  Raeanne Davis said her husband was a great firefighter, but he was also a farmer and father to their three children.  She thanked the community for their support.

“I want to thank all of you for the outpouring of support. This community has been nothing short of amazing,” Davis said. “Scott was our hero long before he was your hero and we will miss him.”

Scott Davis died last Wednesday when a roof collapsed during a fire at Tabernacle of Praise church.  He was the first firefighter to die in the line of duty in Muncie since 1955.  His coffin was processed through Muncie to fire station number one for a last alarm ceremony, called out over emergency radios.  It reads, in part:  “…their tasks complete, their duties well done, to our comrade’s, their last alarm, they are going home.”
