I have had the privilege to work in the South BX in the late 70's and early 80's. I was in 48 Truck and we ran in with both 31 & 42 Trucks. Georgie Munch, legendary BX Dispatcher, told me the 3 busiest Trucks when the BX was Burning were 31, 42 & 48. Seeing these Legends operate was beyond belief. Big Jim Ginty was in the middle of it all. I loved going down Bruckner Blvd towards their area. St John's & Beck was a Good box. I then had the opportunity to work with his son, Jimmy, in 59 Truck (The Blue Devils). Jimmy & I studied together for the LT exam and were promoted on the same day in 1994. When I had the Honor to become the Captain of Tower Ladder 120, Big Jim's other son, Patty became the Capt of Hook & Ladder 175. We saw then often and had a great time when we did, besides going to many fires together. We were part of the 44 Battalion. Arguably the best Battalion on the Job. I am trying to wrap my limited skull around this loss and it is difficult. We just buried Capt Frank Pampalone (Ladders 40, 42, 59 & 111) within the last year and he and Jimmy worked together in 42. As a young Fireman in Ladder Company 48, I would be working the holidays. We would go to midnight mass at 42 Truck's quarters on Christmas Eve. There would be 10-12 rigs outside. It was a wonderful & moving experience. Today, they would "hook you up" for being out of your area. Big Jim, rest easy My Friend. The Best thing I have heard since Jimmy's passing was from a 236 Engine guy (and former Marine) thanking Jimmy for starting up "this Beautiful thing, the band". RIP to a True FDNY & American Legend...

 As a buff, I always read these announcements. I didn't really know anybody but I know the kind of work they did. Never in the history of any fire dept has any group of firefighters seen the amount of very heavy fire activity as this group. The group that I refer to as the "Greatest Generation of Firefighters". It was really what the FDNY was all about.

 May Firefighter Ginty, and all the rest of the Greatest who have since past, Rest in Peace.

 Thank you for your services to the City of New York - risking your life during the busiest of times in the entire history of the FDNY.

I believe Lt. Dunne was a fireman in E-219 before getting made. A nice guy. Rest in Peace. Thoughts and prayers for your family.
