Family, Friends Say Goodbye To Chief Lowhorn

Posted: Updated:

ESTILL SPRINGS, Tenn.- The city of Estill Springs laid to rest its fire chief Sunday.

The small mid-state town suffered a tragic loss when their fire chief died in an accident on Christmas Day. Franklin County Sheriff Tim Fuller said that Estill Springs Fire Chief Anthony Lowhorn died in a fall on Tuesday. According to Fuller, Lowhorn went up on a ladder to change a flood light at his son's house and somehow slipped, fell to the ground and hit his head.

Lowhorn was rushed to Southern Tennessee Medical Center, but he died from his injuries. Sheriff Fuller said Lowhorn was well-known and liked in the community which he served for more than 30 years.

Friends say Lowhorn had dreamed of being a firefighter since he was a young boy. He was 57-years-old.
