The greater Spokane community is still in shock after the death of a local firefighter. Shane Robins was a firefighter with Spokane Fire District 10.

Robins was on vacation with family friends in Maui and died unexpectedly while snorkeling on Monday. Information on exactly how Robins died has not been released yet.

Fellow firefighters say Shane was a hard worker, and a man of faith, who was always willing to go the extra mile for his crew. Firefighters covered their badges and had flags at half staff to honor Shane.

"Shane had a work ethic that was second to none. He would be the first one to get in the trenches and get dirty," said Lt. John Koberstine.

"He even ran some of our 18 year old boys into the ground during recruit academy," said Dept. Chief Robert Ladd.

Even on the toughest days, Shane's signature smile was a comfort to many.

"He just had an infectious personality, always positive, always smiling, nobody can ever remember a time when he wasn't smiling," said Ladd.

"Always had a smile on his face. You couldn't be in a bad mood when Shane was around," said Koberstine.

Shane leaves behind his wife, two adult children and several grandchildren.
