Thomas DeAngelis, 51, had been a Battalion Chief for five years. When promoted, his wife said that now, after 22 years of running into burning buildings, as a BC, he wouldn’t have to do that any more. But she knew he’d never send a firefighter into to a building he hadn’t personally entered and checked out. Sometimes called “Chuckles” at the firehouse for his good humor, he dreamed of writing a children’s book one day. Father of three, he only had two years as a grandfather.
