A volunteer firefighter was killed, authorities said, when Monday’s high winds sent a tree crashing down on his truck.
Channel 2’s Matt Johnson went to the firefighter’s station in Fannin County, where he said everyone seemed to have a story about Stanley Henson, 47, and how he helped others.
“He was like a brother,” Fire Chief Larry Thomas said. Thomas said Henson devoted his life to helping others as a Fannin County firefighter.
Thomas told Johnson that Henson had just worked with him to help someone in a car crash just hours before Henson died.
“He was a great man. He was always there when I needed him,” Thomas said.
The volunteer firefighter and married father was driving through Dawson County on Monday when high winds caused a tree to fall on his truck.
