Brother Tory Carlon Memorial Service
Updated On: Jun 25, 2021


Sisters & Brothers,

Today we honored the memory of our Brother Tory Carlon.

It was an emotional and difficult day today but also a day full of love and stories about Brother Tory and his incredible love of family and the Fire profession.

At the service, we heard from Tory’s family including his five siblings and his daughter Joslyn as well as his LACOFD family. Our Brother Tory was an extraordinary man. A man who left this world a better place and who was a dedicated servant to the community he grew up in for the past 21 years. A loving and committed family man, a jokester, a mentor, and brother to all.

Throughout these past few weeks, we have been confronted with so many difficult questions. But each time the solution has been family, our fire family.

Our Local 1014 Executive Board attended and together with California Professional Firefighters President Brian Rice and IAFF 10th District Vice President Stephen Gilman presented The Local 1014 Bible and the IAFF Medal of Valor to Tory’s wife Heidi. 

In his remarks, President Gillotte asked everyone to honor Tory’s legacy as a ‘family man’ by taking a moment today to appreciate and love your family. Whether that’s our fire family or our families at home.

We would especially like to thank all our Union brothers and sisters who not only showed up to support us at the memorial service but staffed our stations so our members could attend the service today.
