182 Langone fb

Peter Langone, 41, was a 14-year FDNY veteran and the chauffeur for Squad 252 in Bushwick. He is from one of four sets of First Responder brothers who died at the WTC. His brother was NYPD. They had the opportunity to respond together many times in their careers, either in their roles as volunteer firefighters in Roslyn, NY, or to the 1990 Avianca crash in Oyster Bay, or the first WTC bombing in 1993.

Peter had a reputation in the firehouse for “telling it like it is.” He was the “elder statesman” who “showed rookies the ropes, speaking bluntly at times. ‘He never beat around the bush.’”

He left behind two daughters, 9 and 5.
