Family and friends gathered Saturday to remember a fallen firefighter.
Sissonville Volunteer Firefighter Will Reed was laid to rest. Reed was a 17-year veteran of the department. Ten volunteer fire departments lead the procession from Sissonville High School to Floral Hills Garden of Memories where he was buried.
Sissonville Fire Chief Tim Gooch said Reed will be missed at the station.
“Will was a great person,” he said. “He had a great personality. He loved people. He was a good firefighter. You could always depend on him. I really appreciated him."
The Malden and Tyler Mountain Volunteer Fire Departments covered the Sissonville area while the firefighters attended the funeral.
