Firefighter‚ Ladder 2
Dates of Service: May 17‚ 1998 – September 11‚ 2001
Born: January 11‚ 1974
Although Michael’s father was a New York City police officer and his brother is in Emergency Medical Services‚ Michael’s ambition in life was to be a firefighter. Michael was a wonderful and loving son to his father John and his mother Eileen‚ who passed away in 1998. Michael was also the greatest brother in the world to James and his wife Kym. He was a doting uncle to Tiffany Lynn and James Patrick‚ II‚ more like a second father to both.
Michael was a top student and hockey player in high school and college. Upon his death‚ Michael had his #34 hockey jersey retired by Farrell High School‚ Wagner College‚ and St. Josephs by the Sea‚ where he volunteered as a coach. Michael also enjoyed hunting‚ fishing and looked forward to the day his nephew Jimmy and niece Tiffany could join him‚ his brother and father on their annual trips.
Many will miss Michael.
