Fireman Brady/EMT Bill Faure honored at memorial service
Faure died on March 9 in San Angelo at the age of 38.
BRADY, Texas. Bill Faure was born in 1984 and grew up in Brady. He passionately enjoyed playing sports, spending time outdoors, and most of all spending time with his wife Linda and two sons.
Fore spent most of his adult life as a fireman/ER in Brady, where he worked for the City of Brady Fire Department, the Brady Volunteer Fire Department, and the City of Big Lake Fire Department.
On March 9, Faure died in San Angelo at the age of 38, and on March 17, his memorial service and procession were held in Brady.
“We should all remember Bill in his lifetime,” said one of Fauré’s colleagues at the Rest Haven Cemetery.
The memorial service itself was held at First Baptist Church, where various firefighters spoke highly of Faure and the memories they shared with him.
The service was led by Rev. Paden Behrens and Virgil Webb, and a procession immediately followed.
Fire engines and ambulances headed from the church to the cemetery, where a large crowd had gathered for a final farewell.
The bagpipes were played by colleagues, family members and friends, united to pay tribute to Fauré for the last time.
His wife and sons sat under the tent, while former colleagues saluted and stood in proper uniform.
“You take his virtues, you take his good qualities… and you live by them in your life,” another firefighter said.
A short paragraph from Ecclesiastes was also read aloud, and then the fireman addressed Faure’s wife and sons directly.
“…The whole family… finds solace in all the good things he [Fore] made for the people,” he said.
“Find solace in your love for each other,” he added.
After the funeral, family, friends and colleagues gathered together to have lunch with each other.
A GoFundMe page has also been set up to help raise extra money for the family.
