Celebration of Life for Former West U Fire Chief


A celebration of life service will be held for the city's longtime former Fire Chief, Steve Ralls, who passed away over the Labor Day weekend. The service will take place Saturday, September 8 at 1 pm at the West University Baptist Church, located at 6812 Auden St.


Uniformed personnel(active or retired) who wish to participate in the walking procession from the fire station to the church, should report to the fire station located at 3800 University Blvd. by 12:30 pm.  Due to limited parking, fire apparatus from other agencies are not being requested or encouraged.  Fire service personnel with questions regarding fire department involvement can contact Chief Taylor at the West University Fire Department at 713-662-5836.


Chief Ralls began his career as a West U firefighter in 1974 and retired as Fire Chief in June 2013.  In his 39 years of service, he was a friend, a mentor and a great leader to many that had the opportunity to know him.
