    This is all I was able to find today:

    FRANKLIN - A 19-year-old Carrollton volunteer firefighter, named his department's firefighter of the year in 2005, died Saturday while participating in a training exercise.

    John Paul Memory III, a firefighter and emergency medical technician, collapsed shortly after 1 p.m., said Fire Chief Joel Acree.

    "J.P.," as he was known by friends, was leading other department members in performing an extrication demonstration as part of Franklin's Patriot's Day celebration.

    Acree said Memory told fellow fighters he was not feeling well just moments before he collapsed.

    Memory had no history of medical problems, Acree said, and the cause of his death was not immediately known.

    Memory, a Newport News native and 2006 graduate of Smithfield High School, was a three -year veteran of the department.

    A memorial scholarship fund has been established in his name. Donations may be sent to: The JP Memory Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o Carrollton Volunteer Fire Department, P.O. Box 77, Carrollton, VA 23314.

    Keep an eye out on VAFIRENEWS.COM . There will be more information posted as it comes in. The Carrollton VFD, where MEMORY was a firefighter, has a website on the Isle of Wight County page. I have not been able to find any other site related. Both sites links are on the VAFIRENEWS site. If anyone else has any information, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have not heard of any funeral arrangements yet.

          Thank you

          Thank you for your thoughts about JP. He is my brother and you have no idea how much it means to hear people talk about him and think so highly of him. We miss him and love him so much.
