There were some local memorial gatherings in Spring Valley this afternoon to honor the late fallen Firefighter Jared Lloyd, a 16 year veteran of Colombian Engine Co #1, who served as an Engineer, a second Lieutenant and first Lieutenant with the company.
Lloyd was a lifelong Rockland resident who attended Spring Valley High School. On their official Facebook page, the Colombian Engine Co described their Brother as “a loving father to his two sons, an avid golfer and bowler and a die hard Mets fan; never losing the faith. He was a friend, a leader, a Brother.”
