GJFD Captain Recognized by Colorado Fallen Firefighter Foundation

Captain John Bennett

The Colorado Fallen Firefighter Foundation is recognizing Grand Junction Fire Captain John Bennett at the Colorado Fallen Firefighter Memorial Ceremony in Lakewood on May 7th. Captain Bennett passed away June 19, 1973, after suffering a heart attack on duty and is the first Grand Junction Firefighter to be recognized by the foundation. The nearly 50 year wait to be recognized is because at the time of Captain Bennett’s death, cardiac was not recognized as a line of duty cause but that has since changed. The Bennett family, GJFD Honor Guard, and representative from GJFD will participate in the ceremony. https://www.cofff.org/home
