David Arce, 36, was nicknamed “Buddha” “because of his strong belief that his purpose in life was to aid and serve.” He had just finished his night shift that morning but accompanied his best friend Michael Boyle in responding to the alarm. His mother would later find old letters to Santa written by poor children in his apartment. For years Firefighter Arce had purchased the toys they asked for and delivered them to their doors.
