DENVER (KDVR) — A technician with the Denver Fire Department passed away during his shift on Monday after being rushed to the hospital, DFD said. He experienced “an apparent cardiac event” and never regained consciousness after emergency room personnel worked on reviving him, DFD said.

Jeff Billingsley, 42, was most recently at the Denver International Airport station and recognized for helping save three people in a 2004 fire. He was a member of the DFD Pipes and Drums Corps, which plays at events and funerals. He was also a DFD Burn Foundation board member.

Billingsley is survived by his girlfriend, Lindsey Foster, his parents John and Margaret Billingsley, his brother Matt, sister Lisa, and nephew Henry.

Details on his funeral services will be provided at a later date.
