Coors Banquet Division has sponsored the Warriors of the West Documentary series supporting the efforts of the Wildland Firefighters Foundation. The UPROXX production company traveled across the United States in 2018 filming stories of the dedicated men and women who make up the 50,000 wildland firefighters protecting our beautiful areas we have all come to know and love.
One of the main stories featured recognizes one of our local families helped by the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. Luke Sheehy’s parents, Doug and Lynn, opened their home to the production company in order to share how the loss of their son impacted them and how the support they received helped in the healing process. Six years ago Luke and two rookie smokejumpers were sent to the nearby Warner Mountains and within minutes of landing, he was struck by a fallen branch and made the ultimate sacrifice of his life in the line of duty.
On July 11 at the Cascade Theatre in Redding there will be a private screening, followed by a Q&A session. This free program is open to those 21 and older, but you must RSVP in advance to attend at -uproxx-registration-63339007677.
For decades, Lassen and Plumas county residents have had the pleasure of listening to Doug Sheehy and John Tew in their many various bands. After the passing of his son, daughter Meg Sheehy, who graduated from San Francisco State University as a music major with vocal honors, decided to form a trio. For several years they wrote and recorded songs about the life of Luke and released “The Ballad of Pale Rider” CD available at Some of the songs were inspired by his career, their loss and even included the firefighter brother’s words to express how he impacted them. There is even a fitness park in Redding dedicated to his excellence in his field. With fire season here, you can support the WFF with your charitable donation or simply by attending this event. Either way, be sure to thank those first responders and all of our heroes who put their lives on the line for us every day.
