John Grabowski - Firefighter - Michigan

Firefighter John Grabowski, age 49, died on October 1, 2012, in Michigan. 

John was a part time paid firefighter with the Riverview Fire Department in Michigan. 

On Sunday, September 30, during his shift, Lieutenant John Grabowski participated in fire department training. His shift ended that day at 1800hrs. The following morning, Lieutenant Grabowski traveled to his second job. At approximately 8:00 a.m., John was found collapsed in the parking lot of his second employer. An emergency response team tended to John and performed CPR. Advanced life support also responded to the scene where they treated Lieutenant Grabowski and transported him to Henry Ford Wyandotte Michigan hospital. Efforts to revive Lieutenant Grabowski at the hospital were not successful and he passed away within approximately one hour of being found in his employer's parking lot. 

Saint Florian, Patron
Saint of Firefighters,
pray for John
The official cause of death has not yet been determined but it may have been due to stress from the training the day before. 

John is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his siblings Steve, Gary, Tony, James, Mike, Bobby and Mary (and all of their spouses); and his children Alyssa and Rebecca. John was predeceased by his wife Angela Hicks-Grabowski. 

Pray for all who die as a result of their jobs. 

Pray for the children of John who have lost their father and their mother at a young age. 

Let us pray that John Grabowski is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
