Nocona,Texas (TNN) - On July 16, a Ringgold Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief died after his vehicle rolled over on the way to a grass fire.

Duncan Henderson, 65, had only been with the department for five years before his untimely death.

On Thursday, the Ringgold Fire Department honored him in a procession, where fire fighters, family and residents all came to say their final goodbyes.

The fire department also celebrated Henderson by naming one of the station’s fire engines “Duncan Kitten” in his honor.

“Duncan’s goal as a volunteer fire fighter was to help make the community a safer place to live and a better place for the community” said Jack Simpson, Ringgold Volunteer Fire Department Chief.

Those who worked with and knew Henderson say he will be greatly missed and always remembered for his hard work and dedication to the community.
