In Memory, By Any Name, A Hero 

This page is dedicated to the memory of those loved ones who have passed away and to those of us left behind who miss them. The staff of the Houston Firefighters' Relief and Retirement Fund honors the strength, courage, and humanity of our fallen heroes and their widows. 

The Memorial Garden

A beautiful garden located on Pension Fund property paying tribute to all firefighters. The garden includes pavers, benches, the “Wall of Honor” and a breathtaking statue, “The Rescue".

Wall of Honor

The “Wall of Honor” is a tribute to every deceased Houston Fire Department Firefighter. This wall includes the names of deceased firefighters since the beginning of paid firefighters in Houston.

The Rescue

Noted local sculptor, David Adickes, designed a memorable bronze statue on a four-sided granite base portraying a firefighter's rescue as he is locked in on a ladder while handing down a baby to another firefighter on the ground. The base of the sculpture memorializes all firefighters lost in the line of duty.
