Former Pagosa Fire Protection District (PFPD) Chief Warren Gram and PFPD Captain/Fleet Manager Will Clark stand at attention as Deputy Chief Karn Macht carries the cremains of PFPD firefighter and board member Ed Ainsworth for Monday’s memorial service. Ainsworth’s wife, Deb Ainsworth, was escorted into the ceremony by PFPD Chief Randy Larson. Prior to the service, local firefighters accompanied Ainsworth’s wife from Durango with a procession of fire apparatus. Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office led the procession beginning at the county line, with Pagosa Springs Police Department joining.
