OXFORD, N.Y. — A 33-year-old EMT and police officer died suddenly on Monday after suffering a pulmonary embolism and cardiac arrest.

Ed Ulfik worked as a medic for Chenango Ambulance and an officer for the Oxford Police Department.

“He was a wonderful man and was loved by so many,” said his fiancée Tiffani Rombach. “The support and love from our emergency services has been astronomical. He truly was a hometown hero and the community has made that very clear to us.

He will have a multi-county full response honorary funeral on April 12, and an April 5 benefit by The Chenango Fire Company will be directed to his funeral and bills

Rest in Peace, Brother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family, and your fellow responders.
