Lt. Michael Healey

145 Healey fb

Lt. Michael Healey met his wife when they were both teenagers. This 18-year FDNY veteran ran long distance races and coached lacrosse, but also apparently loved to clean things around the house. This extended to the firehouse as well where all those chores are shared. When he became a Lieutenant in 1997, he had to be reminded to not change the sheets or wash the dishes any more because Lieutenants have too much paperwork. His wife wrote that on 9/11, he wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere but at Ground Zero. “That’s what he did. ‘That’s our job’ he would have said.” Lt. Healey, 42, left behind three children.
