The BackStoppers is now assisting the family of Firefighter/Engineer Larry W. Lawhorn of the Orchard Farm Fire Protection District who died in the line of duty on May 3, 2015 while en route to a structure fire in Portage des Sioux.

Firefighter Lawhorn was a 17 year member of OFFPD and served with the St. Charles Fire Protection District 19 years prior to his time with Orchard Farm.  He is survived by his wife and two adult children, one of whom serves as a firefighter in our region.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Firefighter Lawhorn’s family, friends, and co-workers.
