I had the honor of working with Rich when he first came on the job. We were both at Sta. 45 in Maspeth. You wouldn't want to meet a nicer, professional and down to earth good guy. From what I understand he was the senior man at Sta.50 at the time of his passing. Rest In Peace Richie and thank you for being a friend. God Bless you and your family.

RET CPT PATRICK "JOE" BOYLAN ENG*246..... FROM ANOTHER SITE .....QUOTE..Capt. Patrick "Joe" Boylan last week in Florida at the age of 91, surrounded by his family as it should be.The 'Old Buffalo' was a mentor and inspirational leader to those who knew him. For many of us First Generation Fireman he was our surrogate 'Father on the Job.' Being new to this life, he taught us that what we do in this job is a lifelong endevour. A true Vocation. He will be missed, but his message lives on in the sons and daughters of the men he inspired. Thanks Cap!
He is predeceased by his son Pat, who after tirelessly working on the pile and in the pit to bring his brothers home from Ladder Co. 7, died in the spring of 2002 during an elective surgery botch. His son Dan is retired from Engine Co. 45
Captain Pat was awarded the 'UFOA' Medal in 1986.At the time, not a lot was known about AIDS transmission. The 'Old Buffalo' gave mouth to mouth to a baby whose father we found out after the fire, had HIV. ..UNQUOTE. REST IN PEACE BROTHER....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BOTH MILITARY (US ARMY) & FDNY.
