MILLSBORO, Del. — A firefighter from Delaware is giving the gift of life even after his death.

Jason Faulkner died on New Year’s Day, but before he died, he decided to donate his kidney to a man who had been on dialysis for more than two years, Delaware NBC station WRDE reported.

"He always was saving somebody,” Melissa Bixby said of her brother Jason. “I mean I could go on with stories that we've told in the last couple of days. "

Jason was an organ donor, and his family says donating the kidney just made sense.
