Funeral Services Held For Flomaton Fireman

June 28, 2008


Funeral services for Flomaton Fire Department Lt. Huey Johnson, 58, were held Friday afternoon.

Johnson was a lifelong resident of Escambia County, Alabama, and had served on the Flomaton Fire Department for about 20 years. Two of those years were spent as chief. He was also a retired career firefighter with 33 years of service at Whiting Field.

Funeral services were held at the First Baptist Church of Flomaton. Almost two dozen fire trucks from departments across South Alabama and Northwest Florida participated in the procession. Ladder trucks from the Century Volunteer Fire Department and the Ferry Pass Volunteer Fire Department hoisted a giant American Flag over the procession route to the Elim Baptist Church Cemetery.

Johnson died Tuesday night after a battle with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
