Tristan Red Obituary, Death – If you knew Tristan Red, you knew that he carried the largest smile with him wherever he went. He did this no matter what he was doing. Never before have I seen someone so happy at six in the morning when they arrived at work every day. It was impossible not to catch his enthusiasm for the work. Tristan was an outstanding individual in addition to being an outstanding firefighter.
I know that one day I’ll learn the reason why you had to return home so quickly, but until then, I’m going to treasure the late-night conversations we had about the job, relationships, life, and everything else. I know that one day, my friend, I will get to see your beautiful smile again. All of the members of the Benton Fire Department, as well as the family and friends of fallen firefighter Tristan Red, are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
You could hear members of the police and fire departments joking with each other about who is the best, but the reality is that we all have a tremendous amount of respect for one another and work together for the benefit of the wonderful city of Benton. We are deeply saddened by the fact that a member of the team has passed away. We ask that you join us in praying for his family and loved ones and that you lift them up in your prayers.
