“Chive, Saturday night we lost a true shining star in the fire community. Justin died in a tragic fishing accident at age 21.
Justin Friajo was an up and coming leader in both the Wildland and Structural Firefighting community. Justin worked for the Oregon Department of Forestry as a firefighter and also voluntered with the Colton Rural Fire Protection District.
Right now the Communtity of Colton Oregon, where he was born and raised, is hurting.
Saturday we will say our final goodbye’s with our firefighting brothers from around the state.
Godspeed young Justin. Keep your head up and shovel on the ground.”
