“He knew his job well; we knew he would always have our backs and we would have his. Everyday he exhibited the passion, he tried, he had a lot of heart … he had all the traits that make a firefighter really good,” said Williamson.

Williamson says Grabowski was heavily involved in charity work … always thinking about those who were less-fortunate.
