Just received word of the passing of Ret. Lieutenant Armando Smith, Eng 279. Lt. Smith was a WW 2 Navy Veteran who I believed joined the FDNY in 1951. His first assignment was at Eng 230, I remember him as a quiet and respected Lieutenant in Red Hook..
A mass will be held on Friday, December 3rd., at Saint Phillip Episcopal Church, 334 Donahue Street, Brooklyn 10am.
Viewing will be the same day 8-10am.
another good one gone.

Correction to previous post on Lieutenant Smith. His name is ‘Ormond‘ and mass is at 234 Mac Donough Street, Brooklyn.
My bad! Jack (68jk09) mentioned his son Warren worked with him at Eng 275.
Just another note Smitty always showed up for the reunion party every 1/31, until Covid halted it. Get it on 1/31 every year for L 131, can’t forget the date. Will miss seeing him.
