Roll of Honor:
Jonathan S. Croom
Buffalo Fire Department
New York
Age: 34
Year of Death: 2009
Jonathan Simeon Croom joined the Buffalo Fire Department in 1999. He was best known as "Sim."

His greatest joy was his love of life, family and friends. An avid athlete, he spent his time playing sports, exercising,ile and warm personality. His sense of humor knew no bounds, and he could make light of any situation. As a single parent, he devoted his life to raising his daughter, Joanna.
Anything he worked at was done with great pride and courage, so as a dedicated firefighter, his last act of heroism came as no surprise to those who knew and loved him. As a son, he was perfect. Sim would be overwhelmed and very pleased by this year's memorial.
He is survived by his parents, Duane and Maria Angela Heusinger, and Jonathan Croom; and his two siblings, Gabriel Antoine Croom and Beau Croom. Sim also leaves behind his fiance, Ingrid Perugachi, and his two children, Joanna Croom-Coronel and Jonathan 'Danielito' Croom.
We love you, Sim.

'Love is stronger than death, fiercer than the grave.'

Our gratitude goes to the members and volunteers at Find A Grave web site for recording the details, in memory of Jonathan.
