This is the story of a Volunteer fighter and family man from Schuyler County Missouri he is now 36 and has two kids and works nearly 12 hour days in an auto salvage yard in all kinds of weather and no matter the time if he is not at work when called he will be out at a fire or at the seen of an accident to help. And nearly three years ago he was nearly crushed to death by a car that fell while being held up so he could get parts off. He was lucky to come away with his life but his lower leg was crushed they had to rebuild it with metal and screws but just after a few months he was back up and at work and fighting fires.This man has lived his whole life in Schuyler County and at the time when he was hurt and could not work this county showed him just what he means to them by sending many cards and paying for gas so his wife and kids could go see him in the hospital everyday.This is just one of many stories in this county of hard working people who don't give up in our county.
