Even after retiring, Jim was always listening to the scanner. Here he lends a hand at an early morning fire.
Chili, NY - Jim Christian, a retired career firefighter in the St. Paul Fire District, passed away from cancer on January 24th while surrounded by his loved ones.
Jim volunteered in his hometown fire department since 1971, achieving the rank of Deputy Chief, and also served on several committees over the years. He was the second and longest-serving Town of Chili Fire Marshal. He played gold nearly every day and even worked part-time as a starter and ranger at one of them. Jim also served in the U.S. Army.
Jim was married for 49 years and raised a son and daughter. He will be sorely missed at the fire department with his one-liners and keen memory of stories gone by.
