Honoring a Hero
In a show of support for fellow firefighter and Utah Highway Patrol trooper Aaron Beesley, fire crews from three departments convened in Bear River City on the evening of July 3. Beesley, who served as assistant fire chief in Corinne and was well known to all local fire fighting units, was killed during a rescue operation on June 30. Department members from Honeyville arrived first at the Beesley home and were then joined by firefighters from Corinne and Tremonton. Beesley was laid to rest on Saturday in the West Point Cemetery, his casket carried there on one of Corinne’s fire trucks.
