John Napolitano, 33, was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant. He had 10 years with the FDNY and a box full of medals. He began his career at 17 when he became a junior volunteer for the Lakeland FD in Ronkonkoma, where he eventually became their youngest-ever chief and then a commissioner.

“Firefighting was his life’s work, but not his life.” His life was devoted to his family. His two little girls, 6 and 3, were the light of his life.
