Everett H. Williamson died attempting to save Jeremy J. Williamson from burning, Warsaw, Ohio, March 14, 1988. Jeremy, 9, and his three brothers were asleep on the second floor of their family’s two-story residence when fire broke out on the first floor. Jeremy’s uncle, Williamson, 32, who was visiting the family, discovered the fire and alerted Jeremy’s father. Williamson then ran upstairs and roused Jeremy and his brothers from their sleep, telling them to flee. The fire spread, and smoke filled the interior of the house. The three brothers climbed out a second-story window to safety, but Jeremy and Williamson did not. Both died in the fire.
