Obituary for Firefighter Alec Tannenbaum

Firefighter Tannenbaum.

My sweet, funny, dedicated son, Alec, has gone to heaven unexpectedly. Alec is the son of Heidi and the late Farrell Tannenbaum. He was born in Goshen, NY on October 13, 1990.

Alec was an NFA graduate. Shortly after school he entered into the military and served as a proud Marine for 4 years, earning a Purple Heart for his service. Alec was an active volunteer member in good standing at the Vails Gate Fire Department in New Windsor, and an active participant in the Wounded Warrior Project. Among his recent accomplishments, Alec became a full-time West Point Firefighter, helping once again to save the lives of others.

Alec leaves behind his mom Heidi; brothers Greg and Blake; his girlfriend Meagan; Aunts Shari and Lois; Uncle Angelo; Cousin Brianna; and his many, many cherished friends over the years. He will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation in Alec’s can be made to the Vails Gate Fire House at PO Box 101, Vails Gate New York 12584, or the Wounded Warrior Project located on their website www.woundedwarriorproject.org/donate.

A graveside service will take place on Sunday, August 9 at 12 noon at Cedar Hill Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will follow at Vails Gate Fire Dept., New Windsor, NY.
