Richard Freidt served in the Seattle, Washington Fire Dept. for 26 years, then was in semi-retirement and finally ended up as a motorcycle escort for private funeral processions. He also served for nearly 30 years as an elder in the Shoreline Congregation. He died as a result of an accident while at work. See "Ex-firefighter dies after 'blink-of-the-eye' crash."
I find it interesting that he was able to serve as elder and maintain his job as firefighter without conflict. Wonder how he did it?
