Dozens of firefighters formed a guard of honour to salute Mr Keaton's coffin.

Geoffrey Keaton and fellow firefighter Andrew O'Dwyer passed away on December 19th when their firetruck hit a fallen tree. The pair were on their way to fight NSW blazes and protect lives and property.

Next week, a funeral for O'Dwyer will take place.
