Ammon firemen honor fallen comrade with procession

Idaho Falls

AMMON — The Ammon Fire Department led a procession of fire engines down Sunnyside Road to honor the passing of one of their own, Saturday, Oct. 24.

Bryon Michael Christopher Kunkel, 26, passed away early Sunday, Oct. 18. He was a U.S. Army veteran and a volunteer with the Ammon Fire Department.

“Today we are supporting the family and friends of a member of our department that passed away this week,” Deputy Chief Keith Banda said. “The procession was a way of showing respect for him from the funeral home to the fire station and we held a celebration of life.”
