Brother Eric Hayashi is Remembered at the IAFF 55th Convention

January 2021:  The 2020 IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial was postponed due to the pandemic. A total of 581 fallen brothers and sisters were remembered at this year’s convention. Brother Eric Hayashi was included in this IAFF Line-of-Duty Death Tribute. He passed away on August 8, 2020. See list, 2020 Line-of-Duty Deaths

In 2020, we mourned the sudden loss of  Fire Equipment Operator Eric T. Hayashi of the Hawaii Fire Department, in a Line of Duty Death.  On Saturday, August 8, 2020, Brother Hayashi was on-duty, and while on an emergency call, experienced a critical medical emergency himself.  He was transported to the Hilo Medical Center where he passed.

All of us at HFFA send our sincerest condolences to the Hayashi family and to our brothers and sisters of the Hawaii Fire Department for your loss.

Rest in peace, Brother.
