Rest in peace Jack O'.Members of this site, I have some very sad news.
This morning, Thursday June 11th, we lost a good friend. His name - Jack O'Riley, aka "JOR176".
Jack had retired from the FDNY Communications Division where he worked on the street fire alarm boxes.
Jack was also a member of the FDNY Bell Club and a buff of the FDNY.
I had met Jack one time in Florida where he lived after his retirement. He also had a daughter living in New Jersey that he would come up to visit on occassions.
Sometimes he would also join a few of us at a favorite spot of ours in Bayside Queens called Maggie Mays. He would often travel there with his good friend Warren Fuchs, retired FDNY Dispatcher.
Jake we will miss you and thank you for all your services to the City of New York.
Rest in Peace Jack.
Willy D and your friends of Nycfire.net
