Justin Beebe memorial serviceJustin Beebe was honored and remembered at a memorial service Saturday at Ogren Park at Allegiance Field in Missoula. Justin was killed by a falling tree August 13 during chainsaw operations on the Strawberry Fire in eastern Nevada.

Dick Mangan, who took these photos at the service, estimated that between 750 and 1,000 were in attendance, including what appeared to be virtually all of the Interagency Hotshot Crews in the Northern Region. Justin was a member of the Lolo Hotshots based in Missoula.
