Former Fire Commissioner Charles Hynes
« on: February 01, 2019, 03:22:45 PM »
From another site:

"It   is   with   deep   regret   that   the   Department   announces   the   death   of   former   Fire   Commissioner, Charles Joseph Hynes, which occurred on January 29, 2019.   Hynes  was  born  and  raised  in  the  Flatbush  section  of  Brooklyn.    He  attended  St.  Ann's  Academy in Manhattan (now Archbishop Molloy High School), and received both his bachelor's degree, in 1957, and his J.D. in 1961 from St. John's University in Jamaica, Queens. Hynes was appointed the 24th New York City Fire Commissioner by Mayor Edward I. Koch on November  5,  1980  upon  the  resignation  of  Augustus  A.  Beekman.    Hynes  served  in  that  position until his resignation on October 22, 1982. "It  is  a  sad  day  for  the  FDNY  and  New  York  City,"  said  current  Fire  Commissioner  Daniel  Nigro.  "Former Fire Commissioner Hynes, a true New Yorker, served this Department and city with great honor and pride.  He will be missed." 

Rest in Peace Commissioner Hynes. Thoughts and prayers for your family

RIP, Commissioner Hynes. Interesting to note that St. Ann's/Archbishop Molloy HS has provided the city with both a Fire Commissioner and a Police Commissioner.  Commissioner Ray Kelly is a Molloy graduate . . . graduated with me in 1959.
