Manny Pena
Jan 21, 1932 – Aug 22, 2020
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Manuel Pena, loving husband, devoted father, and doting grandfather. He departed this world peacefully, surrounded by his family.
He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Ann, his five children (Michael, Debbie, Steve, Richard and Catherine); six grandchildren (Michael, Katie, Joe, Lauren, Lily and Lara), and the lucky people who got to marry into this Pena family.
He grew up in the Bronx. He served in the Navy during the Korean War. He joined the FDNY in 1958 and spent his entire career in Ladder 48 in the south Bronx until he retired due to a line-of-duty accident. He then worked for years after in the private sector.
He was tremendously proud of his career, but if you knew Manny, you’d know that’s just the backdrop for the real story of his life: his family and friends.
Manny was a man who was always loving, always loyal to the people he loved, and always right (though there are some dissenting opinions on that last bit). He found no greater happiness than surrounded by his family, and he came up with as many excuses as he could to make that happen, even if it involved bribing them to go away on vacations. His love was profound, his intellect prodigious, and his taste in beer, terrible.
He cheated death many times, and the world was a better place for it. He lived through a very serious injury with the fire department, he survived stage four cancer for 12 years, and he lived through three months in a hospital and rehab center due to COVID. After coming home for three months and being with his family, he left this earth on his terms, surrounded by his family. And that was not happenstance.
He was a planner and a provider. He provided for his wife and family, and they never wanted for anything. Seriously, you should see the box of instructions he left for his children to make sure his wife was cared for in fine fashion. Even in death, he had his say.
Manny, we will dearly miss hearing your voice, but forever, we will still be able to hear your words ringing in our heads. Put money in your 401k. Get the Capital One Venture card (the points are tremendous), but above all, always do the right thing.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Steven Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation or the William Randolph Hearst Burn CenterREST IN PEACE BROTHER.....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BOTH MILITARY (US NAVY KOREAN WAR) & FDNY.....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES....I never actually met Manny but knew of his FDNY History from others ...like when during the FH gasoline pump FH Fire (burning up ENG*94) he jumped into his Chauf seat in 48 & pulled the Rig out (no Tillerman ) onto Seneca Ave allowing the BROTHERS trapped in the kitchen to jump on the opposite side of the Truck from the heavy Fire & get out safely .....to his career ending Life Saving Rope injury....years after his Son Mike came to R*2 from 176...it was awhile before i realized that Mike was that Manny Pena's Son....Mike was a quiet but very capable & tough FF who went on to be a LT in R*1.

Seen on a recent department order, the death of Lieutenant Harold J. McLeer. I knew Harry very well in my years at Engine 248. He worked there many years and was a qualified ECC although he never had a "regular seat." Began his career on 4/6/63 at E 248, later promoted to Lieutenant and I believe assigned to E 260, later transferred to E 311 where he retired 8/31/97 after more than 34 years on the job. Harry passed away on 6/6/20. Rest in Peace, old friend.
