Excerpts from ciproud.com:

34-year-old Peoria Firefighter Nick Riordan was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer Stage IV last summer and it spread to his liver. Peoria firefighters say he died Tuesday afternoon from the illness.

Riordan’s Facebook page is now filling up with condolences to his family. He is survived by his wife Sarah and his three children. The youngest child was born around the time he started chemotherapy. Riordan said his strength came from his family and friends. 

Peoria firefighters are planning a fundraiser for the family this Saturday at Knights of Columbus, 7403 N. Radnor Rd in Peoria. The fundraiser is $15 dollars and includes dinner and live music.
