We continue to mourn the loss of Firefighter/Paramedic Arcenio (Rambo) Rumbaoa Jr. We struggle with letting go, wanting to do more, honoring him, and wishing everyone could know him the way we did. One of Rambo’s many attributes was his dedication to education. In his downtime, he could usually be found in the bay or at the kitchen table studying to advance his medical knowledge. He suddenly passed on Sunday, Feb. 20 as the result of a cardiac event.
Arcenio Rumbaoa has a long list of accomplishments. Arcenio served his country as a soldier and medic in the US Army National Guard. After his nearly 22 years of military service, he served his community as a Flight Medic with the Critical Care Team for Lifeline and as a Firefighter/Paramedic with Jackson Township Fire Department. Additionally, Arcenio worked as a Medical Specialist in the Indiana Task Force 1, deploying to help areas damaged by Hurricanes Dorian, Marco, Laura, Delta, and Ida. He also deployed to the Champlain Towers collapse in Surfside to help in rescue efforts.
