South Holland Fire Department news (more)

Found on

South Holland FD Firefighter Dylan CunninghamAs many of you may know Dylan Cunningham left this world yesterday during a dive training exercise. I think it’s only fitting to help raise some funds for his family, fiancé and his soon to be son, to help lessen the stress during this time. Many of us were honored to have had the privilege of knowing Dylan and having him be apart of our lives. Those who didn’t get the chance should know that he would have welcomed you with open arms. He was a genuine person who cared for every person he met and could put a smile on anyone’s face. Coworkers, friends, and family, let’s do what we do best and give back to the man who gave his all each and everyday. These funds will be given to Laura as a beneficiary and be used by them for whatever is needed. Here is the link for the Baby Registry as well .
