YONKERS, N.Y. - A sea of blue mourned the loss of one of its best Saturday morning in Yonkers, and it seemed like all of the Hudson Valley, and in fact, the New York metro area mourned with them.
Thousands of firemen, NYPD, public officials and civilian attendees lined the streets around the Annunciation Church to mourn FDNY Battalion Chief Michael Fahy, killed Tuesday in a Bronx building explosion.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, was in attendance, as was NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and many other dignitaries.
Fahy, a 44-year-old father of three (sons Michael, 11, and Cormac, 6, and daughter Anna, 8) was married to Fiona Fahy, and was a 17-year FDNY veteran.
Fahy, a resident of the Crestwood section of Yonkers and North Rockland High graduate, was struck by flying debris when a blast blew apart a Bronx drug house.
