(WKOW) — Work is underway on a sculpture to honor fallen firefighters.

It stands outside of the Appleton Fire Department.

The sculpture will have four names on it, including Mitch Lundgaard’s.

He was killed in May while responding to a medical call.

The work has special meaning for sculptor Jeff Olson. Lundgaard was married to his niece.

“His loss hit me really bad so I was kind of doing this to kind of get through the grieving process, but also like I said, to honor his memory, and to give his kids a place to do it,” Olson said.

All of the supplies were donated.

Olson hopes to have the sculpture finished by the end of the month.
