A man who's heart filled his entire large frame, a gentle giant, a man's man who lived and died protecting others. The many times our paths crossed, whether professionally or socially you were always there smiling, laughing, just being "Bronk". We will miss you, New York will miss you, the World will miss you, but none of us will ever forget you- I promise you that!

Bronk you filled the firehouse with pranks and laughter ,we will never forget that. You were our hero Bronk ,now your the Worlds hero. Playing in those Football games will never be the same. I'll miss the Knute Rockne speechs and the pumping of the chest. You are a true knuckle head. We love you Bronk and will never forget the proud Irish man in the kilt.

Bronko,
I regret I never had the honor to meet you personally. I feel as though I have always known you through Karen, and through all the stories of your life. You are truly a hero, and an inspiration to me. I have never been so moved by one individual in all my life, God bless you and all your heroic and brave brothers.

I KNEW YOU AS A YOUNG BOY OF 8 OR 9, WHEN I WORKED FOR YOUR DAD AT SKI-O-RAMA, IN HEMPSTEAD. A FORMER WEST HEMPSTEAD FIREMAN, NOW LIVING IN FLORIDA, I WAS ANXIOUS TO SEE THE LIST OF THE 343, WHEN IT WAS RELEASED. MY DEPARTMENT HAD AT LEAST 12 MEMBERS THAT WERE ALSO WITH YHE FDNY.IMAGINE MY SHOCK AT SEEING YOUR NAME AMONG THE MISSING. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU. I AM PROUD TO HAVE KNOWN YOU.
