First responders remembered

1. Jerry Chapman was born April 7, 1987 in Pampa, TX, and was a firefighter for Abbott Volunteer Fire Department.
In his West Memorial eulogy, Chapman’s parents said he was blessed with a kind spirit from childhood onward – a child who had been unique in his love for helping people from the beginning. He was a hard worker, and was ultimately able to discover his passion for service through the Abbott Volunteer Fire Department.

Jerry is survived by his parents, grandparents, a great-grandmother, a sister and other relatives.
