Firefighter killed in crash told fiancee 'I just just want to be remembered as a hero'

First court appearance.

We have continuing team coverage on this story tonight... keely arthur spoke with the family of captain truman... she is live in monona.

And rose schmidt is in lake mills... where the department held a special procession... let's start with keely... live along the beltline... near where this crash happened... it is here where captain chris truman lost his life being a hero... and his family says monday night was far from his only heroic act.

His heroism...is something they are holding on to during this dark time.

5:38 although he died for a great reason, i just want him back, and this pain is going to last forever:45 amber turfle... coming to grips with losing her fiance and hero... 3:24 i would always ask him why he had to stop and he would say that's who i am.

That's what i do.

I'm sorry hunny but we've got to stop :38 that's exactly what he did monday ... the volunteer fire captain saw a woman stranded on the beltline...that snowy evening... but when he got out to help he was struck by another car... :57 he was an amazing man.

He would go out of his way for anyone.

He loved what he did and he would never regret getting out of that car 1:04??

Amber says she doesn't regret chris's actions either but she does regret the actions of 28- year-old samual cremers of columbus...who police say was intoxicated when he hit chris.

5:28 think twice.

Call someone.

Get an uber.

There are so many other things you can do to prevent this :35 chris was taken to uw hospital and pronounced dead... he leaves behind amber and her three children damien, lilly, and taylor.

14:25 for chris coming in to my life, at such a young age - he was always there for me.

I didn't have a good dad at the beginning but he was always there.

He was one worth keeping.

So it is really hard for him to be gone :38 the whole family though taking comfort in the fact the chris truman died exactly how he lived...as true hero.... 8:22 "that means everything to me.

Because he once said to me.

Hunny i just want to be remembered as a hero.

And he got his wish :25 it is here where captain chris truman lost his life being a hero... and his family says monday night was far from his only heroic act.

His heroism...is something they are holding on to during this dark time.
