Firefighter Gregory Stajk

311 Stajk fb

Gregory Stajk was known as “Bro” around Ladder 13. He was a championship pitcher in high school and college, landed a couple tryouts for the majors but didn’t make the cut. So he pursued his other dream which was to join the FDNY where he switched to softball and won the city championship in 1986. 
At 46 he was only a couple of months shy of 20 years on the force but his love for the job meant he didn’t yet think about retiring. He always volunteered to work the holidays so his fellow firefighters with children could spend the day with their families.
