YWN regrets to inform you of the sudden Petira of longtime Flatbush Hatzolah Paramedic Yaakov Aryeh Hakohen (Gary) Lava Z”L, known in Hatzolah by his unit number “F-15”.
Gary was one of the original Paramedics in Flatbush Hatzolah and trained dozens of Paramedics over the years as a seasoned instructor. He was a member of Hatzolah for around 30 years.
Gary suffered a heart attack on Tuesday morning, and was Niftar shortly after.
The Aron passed the Flatbush Hatzolah garage at 12:45PM where Hatzolah members, family and friends gathered to recite Tehillim on the way to Kevura.
