Frank Reed started his 25-year career at the age of 19, serving the City of Odessa Fire Department in Texas. He moved to the City of Visalia Fire Department in 1995, where he completed his career. Frank always felt honored to be a firefighter and to be part of the fire service family. In his spare time, he was an avid motorcyclist and in 2008, the Visalia Firefighters Association started the annual Central Valley Heroes Poker Run in his honor. His greatest legacy, however, was being a loving husband and nurturing father. He died of job-related brain cancer.
