    Unhappy Kentucky Firefighter LODD

    Kentucky Division of Forestry

    It is with deep regret we notify you of the line of duty death of Donald Lam, Jr. of the Kentucky Division of Forestry.

    While serving in the capacity of a firefighter fighting a wild-land fire in Livingston County September 7th, Mr. Lam suffered a critical head injury and was knocked unconscious. He was then overrun by fire and suffered second degree burns. He was airlifted to an Evansville hospital and has been fighting for his life since.

    After exhaustive efforts, physicians told Mr. Lam and his family in late January there was nothing more they could do -- he would die from his injuries... it was just a matter of time. He has been home since in the care of his wife and hospice waiting until, in his words: "the Lord comes to get me." ...He came for him this morning.

    Mr. Lam is survived by his wife, Jennie -- who has been providing around the clock care since the incident occurred, and 14 year old step-daughter.

    The road from September 7th to today has been a very long and difficult one for all concerned. Please keep the Lam and Kentucky Division of Forestry families in your thoughts and prayers.
    .

    Funeral arrangements are pending.


    A brother goes home!God Bless firefighter Lam and his family!
    Always a day late and a dollar short!

    Our thoughts are with him, his family, and all the folks in his life.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.
