The service for 25-year-old Logan Taylor of Talent, Oregon is planned for 10 a.m. Monday at Harry & David Field in Medford. Community members are welcome to attend.
“The family wishes to thank the community and local fire service for their thoughts, prayers and support through this difficult time,” the Oregon Department of Forestry shared on Facebook.
On Aug. 18, Taylor was reportedly struck by a falling tree near the Rum Creek Fire before being airlifted out of the area. He was taken to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford where officials said he ultimately died.
ODF says Taylor was not only a firefighter but was also the owner and operator of a forestry company, Sasquatch Reforestation.

Taylor is the second firefighter to die this month while battling a wildfire in Oregon.
A Colorado firefighter, 27-year-old Collin Hagan, died on Aug. 11 after he was fatally injured while battling a wildfire in Douglas County.
