Woyjeck, the son of veteran L.A. County Fire Department Capt. Joe Woyjeck, had hoped to become a firefighter in the L.A. area like his dad, according to family members. The 21-year-old joined the Prescott unit just three months ago.
Woyjeck, an avid outdoors-man, always wanted to be a firefighter like his father, Joe Woyjeck told “Anderson Cooper 360″ on Monday evening.
“He said, ‘Dad, we got a fire in Yarnell, Arizona. I’ll give you a call later,’” the elder Woyjeck said.
He said it hasn’t sunk in yet that he won’t get that phone call.
“Words can’t describe the loss that our family is feeling right now,” Joe Woyjeck said.
Kevin Woyjeck wasn’t the only firefighter’s son in the Granite Mountain crew.
