Spring Valley firefighter’s funeral plans, how to donate

Funeral services have been set for Spring Valley Firefighter Jared Lloyd.

The 35-year-old was among the first of an estimated 125 Rockland County firefighters to arrive at a massive fire at Evergreen Court Home for Adults, a sprawling assisted-living facility that stretched an entire Spring Valley block on Tuesday.

In the fire and smoke of the building’s third floor, Lloyd went missing. His “mayday” call was his final words to his comrades. It would take crews nearly an entire day to locate his body in the debris. When they did, sometime before midnight, a slow, solemn procession bore him away, emergency lights flashing tribute in the dark. 

The Spring Valley firefighter who went missing in a deadly fire Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at Evergreen Court Home for Adults is 35-year-old Jared Lloyd, his father, Calvin Lloyd confirmed Wednesday.

A native of Flushing, Queens, Jared moved to Spring Valley as a boy and played football for the Spring Valley High School team.

The funeral is planned for Palisades Credit Union Park Boulder Stadium, 1 Palisades Credit Union Park Drive in Pomona at 11 a.m. on Saturday, according to the Columbian Engine Company No. 1 in Spring Valley, where Lloyd had volunteered as a firefighter for 15 years.
