At 6 am on March 4, 2018, a house fire raged in the kitchen/living room of a family home on McConnico Road, in Golden Valley, Arizona.
Thick smoke and a shrill alarm wake the couple, who had mere minutes to find an exit and escape to safety. David and Susan Lorimer attempted to climb through a bedroom window, when Susan (who suffered with asthma and COPD) was overcome by smoke.
David, who suffers from debilitating traumatic brain and spinal injury from a past accident, attempted to pull her from the first story window but collapsed. Susan died of her injuries at the scene. David was in critical condition at the burn unit of UMC Las Vegas, having suffered serious smoke inhalation and burned lung tissue. Sadly, David passed away from his injuries just before midnight, March 11.
David and Susan leave behind two sons, Justin and David, Jr; and, daughter Amanda. They were beloved grandparents of 3, sister or brother to many siblings, children of Christ ... and a truly, truly decent human beings.
This GoFundMe has been set up to help the immediate family defer the cost final expenses. If you can help at all with any amount, please know that we truly thank you.....
On behalf of our brother David,
