Another of the 19 Hotshot firefighters that were killed in Arizona by a terrible wildfire has been buried in the small town of Eklaka, Montana where he grew up. 24-year-old Dustin DeFord is the young man that will be remembered for his desire to be a part of this brave group of firefighters, his enthusiasm for life and for a deep faith in God. The devastated family also spoke about the outpouring they’ve received and thanked the many firefighters who traveled to the funeral.

“We are touched by your compassion and  loyalty,” the family said. “Stay safe out there.”
