Firefighter Michael Lyons

Firefighter Michael Lyons, 32, never had the chance to meet his second daughter. She was born in November of 2011 and was given the middle name of “Michael.” His first daughter had been born just the year before on his own birthday. His wife wrote that his first daughter slowed him down from working all the time – not only at the firehouse but doing engineering jobs on the side. Or roofing. Or driving a hot dog truck. Or working the counter at the deli where they met. This 10-year FDNY vet spent five years with Squad 41 and loved everything about his job.
