In Remembrance of Fulton County Firefighter Felix Roberts
The Kiwanis Club of Johns Creek extends its sincerest condolences to the family and loved ones of Firefighter Felix Roberts and John Callahan.
Firefighter Felix Roberts, 41, an 8-year veteran of the Fulton County Fire Department stationed at Newtown Fire Station at 3165 Old Alabama Rd., died while trying to save John Callahan. Mr. Callahan, a resident of a home that burned on Memorial Day on Gorham Close, was trapped inside the home and died, despite the efforts of all the firefighters from Station 8 who tried to save him. Felix Roberts is the first loss of a firefighter in the 29-year history of the Fulton County Fire Department.
As Kiwanians focused on trying to make our communities a better place, we recognizes the deep loss the entire Department feels on the loss of Felix Roberts and extends sympathy and gratitude to his fellow first responders who continue their dedicated and brave service to our community. These are members of our community who truly "Do Make a Difference."
We also extend our sympathy to the friends and family of John Callahan.
