  • Dear Cousins, Hazel & Charlotte,

    I have wonderful memories of your father. He always gave us his attention as only a loving fun person could do. I am sorry for your loss. My mother, Dorothy is the only one left. She is 86 & in the nursing home here in Concordia. She has dementia so doesn’t remember a lot of people. Goldie Fern gave me this information. Please let me hear from you. God Bless You, Rita

  • Medford was one of the best. I always liked his easy going style and sense of humor. We had many a good laugh. I’m another one that he took under his arm and trained. He and his crew came to our wedding reception and gave us a case of canned goods without any labels on them. Interesting dinners for a few months. Now that I am one of the “old farts” I know what they must have gone through with all us kids running amok in the fire station.

  • Medford, was an old-timer on the dept.when I first joined the dept. I remember him as easy going firefighter with a wealth of knowledge of the dept. He was gracious, in helping to teach this dumb as a box of rocks rookie. Thanks, you will be missed.

  • To hazel Dean and Charlotte – I wish to send my condolences on the loss of your Father. Medford worked at the Hanford Fire Department for many years with my Father, Ray Carson. I have fond memories of our families’ visits in each others homes over the years. What a wonderful experience to have friends like our parents were. My prayers are with you in your time of loss.
