John T. Vigiano II

John was a man who enjoyed life. He loved his family especially his wife‚ Maria and their two daughters‚ Nicolette (6) and Ariana (3).

John loved being a firefighter‚ especially being a chauffer in his company Ladder 132. John enjoyed sports‚ especially golf and hockey.

As a son growing up‚ his parents were very proud of his achievements. Honor roll‚ Eagle Scout and going to college where he graduated with a BA degree. John was a good son‚ a great father‚ and an endearing husband.

He was always there for people willing to help and always with a smile. The smile was his trademark… it added to his sense of humor.

  1. I walked in honor of John today at the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. The weather wasn’t great (60s and raining) but we had over 2,000 people climbing for John and the other 342 fall firefighters. It was inspirational and is a day I won’t ever forget. I’ll continue to keep John and his family in my prayers. God bless all of the fallen firefighters and their families.

    Today I participated in the Fallbrook Firefighters 9-11 memorial hike in Fallbrook, Ca. (a few miles from San Diego.) I was given Johns picture and assigned to ladder 132. I pinned the pic to my chest and carrying Old Glory, John and I climbed a steep mountain that represented the 110 floors of the towers. Unlike John on that fateful day, I came down with him this time, on my mind and forever in my heart.
    I am proud to have served this nation as a Soldier in the United States Army, and proud to have represented John T.Vigiano II, on this day, September 10, 2016.
    God bless the Vigiano family, and God bless these United States of America.

  4. I walked in honor of John at Lambeau Field on Saturday, September 16th, 2017. Thank you to John and his family. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed. I pray that you find strength in the Lord and fellow survivors to honor John until you meet him again. God Bless.

  5. I carried John’s name and picture at the 2017 Memorial stair climb in Green Bay this past weekend. I may not have been able to complete all 110 stories this year, but, John, I got to that bell and rang it with great pride and heartfelt gratitude for you and the hundreds of others who have given your lives in service to our great country.

    Thank you.

    Never forgotten.
