On this day in Columbus Fire history- April 17, 1934, Firefighter James Sims died in the line of duty from a heart attack. F.F. Sims was on duty when he began to feel ill. He drove himself to the hospital in his own car and suffered a heart attack while being driven home by a Columbus Police officer. F.F. Sims was 55 years old when he passed and a 21 year veteran of the Columbus Division of Fire. He left behind a wife and eight children. Along with the pictures posted is a nice letter written by one of his daughters, Mrs. Hazel Lines (date unknown). Mrs. Lines joined her father in Heaven in 2003 at the age of 92 years old. She was no doubt very proud of her Fireman father. May they all R.I.P.
