The Midland community united on Wednesday to remember the memory of one of its own.

Trey Rodriguez was a Midland Firefighter, a father and a friend.

The family held a private service in honor of Rodriguez, who was shot and killed last week.

Following the service a procession was held to the Resthaven Memorial Park, where the Midland Fire Department held a special ceremony.

“"He was very upbeat personality, he was always positive, he liked to joke around with the guys so he was very well liked by everyone," said Chief Robert Isbell with the Midland Fire Department.

During the ceremony, the fire department gave the flag that flew over trey Rodriguez’s fire station to his family.

His helmet presented to his oldest son.

And his colleagues rang his last alarm bell.

“He will be missed but not forgotten,” his colleagues said.

Rodriguez was a Midland Fire Department paramedic for 11 years, a paramedic teacher at the community college and a part time air medical service paramedic.

"Trey's legacy was one of dedication to his career. He was very good at what he did and that will live on in his memory here," Chief Isbell said.
