SUMITON - Officials in Sumiton are reflecting this week on the life of a longtime firefighter, Lt. Rickey Lee Woods, who died last week and will receive a major fireman's tribute at his funeral on …
Words simply cannot describe this man enough. I worked for the City (Jail/Dispatch) in 2013 alongside him, many times Rickey would be the first one to the Fire Dept for medical calls, I never heard him complain, or say anything bad about anyone.
Currently suspected to be Covid-19 related, possibly caught from working calls.
I'm gonna miss Rickey, even if I did accidentally wake him up one time testing a siren... He was also a fantastic BBQ/Grill man, and would often be found grilling outside the FD in the summer.
