WHO WAS EMILIO?  Emilio joined the United States Marine Corps in 2009 and was assigned to artillery in the 5th battalion 11th Marines unit where he specialized in HIMARS.  After four honorable years of service, Emilio returned to his family in Pasco County, Fl. While serving Emilio and his battalion/unit broke two military records while overseas. After a few short months after his discharge, Emilio had the urge to continue his service. Emilio attended the Florida State Fire College and received the “Top Dog” reward which is earned by having the overall best physical shape and dedication among his classmates.
After fire academy, he was hired on by Marion County Fire Rescue, he served 5 years as a Firefighter/EMT.  A current Madeira Beach Firefighter worked with Emilio and his brother Gary for several years in Marion County before his position with MBFD.  Emilio was 29 years young, he left behind his 3 year-old son.
