Michael H. Gebert

Michael Gebert was just 28 years old when he passed away on the morning of September 11, 2022.

Michael was appointed to the Fire Department of New York on June 27, 2016. Upon graduating from the fire academy, Mike was assigned to Engine Company 324 in the Corona section of Queens, New York. His willingness to tackle any task and his infectious smile made him a beloved member of the company. He was that person that would drop everything to help family, friends, or even a stranger.

He was an alum of Saint Francis Preparatory High School and Saint John’s University of New York. He volunteered at Saint Francis Preparatory as a football coach and played hockey, basketball, and softball in fire department and local recreational leagues. His love for his favorite sports teams, the New York Rangers, Mets, and Jets, was only topped by the love he had for his family and friends.

Mike survived two previous battles with cancer, once as a teen and the second as a young firefighter. In 2014, Mike competed in the New York City Marathon to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. No one would ever know Mike was battling cancer; he never complained and always had a smile on. He had an ability to make everyone around him a better person.

Mike is survived by his mother, Elizabeth; father, Thomas; brothers, Matthew and Brendan; and sister, Jennifer. They created the FF Michael Gebert Memorial Foundation in his honor. This foundation holds true to the values that Mike held so close to his heart, rare pediatric cancer research and helping families in their fight with cancer. Mike is greatly missed by all who knew him, but his legacy of giving and kindness will carry on.

“93 to infinity”
