Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

Family, friends, and colleagues are remembering Chicago Fire Department paramedic Robert Truevillian, who died of COVID-19 last year. A 20-year CFD veteran, Truevillian worked on Ambulance 71 in the South Deering neighborhood. He had been battling COVID-19 for about a month before he died last December.

Tuesday morning, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and fellow firefighters were on hand as Truevillian’s badge was added to the memorial wall at the Quinn Fire Academy.

Truevillian was 55 years old. He was the third active member of the Chicago Fire Department to die of COVID-19.
