Words from Dickman’s funeral service

“People who come into the academy, we take possession of them both literally and figuratively. To lose one of my kids is heart-wrenching.”

“Jamie’s ultimate goal was for the well-being of his brothers and sisters and the citizens he served. What more can you ask of a firefighter? Throughout that time there is one part of our relationship that never changed  — that was friendship. He put a smile on your face in good times and in bad. He was the first person to offer a helping hand when needed, and Jamie was always willing to share in your joy even though he may not be having the best day. What more can you ask of a friend? I tried to put it into words to describe Jamie. I came up with a list: caring, respectful, brave, compassionate, honorable, loyal, friendly, hardworking, eager to learn, dedicated and forgiving, son, brother, husband, father. I look at this list, and I wonder: What more can you ask of a man?”

— Perkins fire assistant Chief David Murphy
