Members of Nycfire.net,

I just learned that one of our frequent contributors to this site has passed away on November 1st '20.

Frank Meade, aka "manhattan" passed away of natural causes in his apartment on West 23rd St in Manhattan at age 70. He would have been 71 on November 5th.

Frank did so much for the members of the FDNY, NYPD, and U.S. Military Veterans. He was very highly respected by the members of those services.

On the anniversary of September 11th he would play a major role in organizing the Father Judge Walk along with the late NYPD Officer Steven McDonald who was shot and paralyzed in Central Park. Officer McDonald passed away just a few years ago.

Frank also reorganized the Veterans Day Memorial Service at Chelsea Park in Manhattan on 9th Ave and 27th St.

I believe that Frank had served in the U.S. Coast Guard and he retired as an Administrator of a large section within a NYC Hospital.

Most recently, Frank started a fund raiser to buy meals for the members of NYPDs 10 Pct, and FDNY Firefighters Engine 3/Ladder 12, as well as the FDNY/EMS members. Frank posted that fund raiser on here and I know that some members contributed to that.

Frank was also very active in his local church.

Not only have "we" lost a good man, but "our entire society" has lost a good man as well. I know that he really enjoyed and appreciated reading the various topics on this site.

Frank was last on this site, the day he passed away on November 1st. We'll miss you Frank. You certainly served your purpose well while on this earth.

God Bless you Frank for all you did. Thank you and may you Rest in Peace.

Here is Frank at the Veterans Day Memorial Service on November 11, 2018

We had learned from this site member Phil Dancy "Lebby” that when Frank Meade, aka "manhattan" (RIP) had learned that an American Flag was destroyed that was on the back of one of FDNY/EMS ambulances, Frank purchased another flag to replace that one damaged.

We had learned that from "Lebby" and as I understand it, he put that American Flag on the back of the ambulance, aka "bus", that he uses on his EMS tours providing life saving services to the people and visitors of NYC.

Recently, that ambulance was taken out of service during "Lebby’s" days off, apparently to be replaced by a new unit. In addition to that, the American flag that Frank Meade (RIP) had purchased also went along with that ambulance.

Today (Saturday 1/9), "Lebby" plans to make a trip to the EMS Shops to try and locate that flag. I sure appreciate the fact that Phillip is willing to do this. For many of us, this is a very Special American Flag and I sure hope that he is able to locate it and attach it to the back of the FDNY/EMS unit he operates.

Yesterday, one of our members called me and the discussion led to Frank Meade "manhattan". I could NOT say enough about Frank. He was such a GREAT Individual and did so much for others. His appreciation to the members of the NYPD, FDNY, FDNY/EMS, and U.S. Military Veterans was "second to none".

He was a very educated man but never boasted about his own accomplishments.

Although I only met Frank three or four times in person, I am truly "HONORED" that I DID get that privilege. What a Gentleman and Great Guy he was.

Now my wish is that "Lebby” is able to recover that American Flag that has special meaning to many of us here.

If there's anyone here who might be able to help in the recovery of that flag, please do your best to accomplish that for the members of this site and in memory of our good friend who we lost in November (2020), Frank Meade, aka "manhattan".

Phillip "Lebby”, Thank you for this effort on your part and PLEASE let ALL of us here know if you are able to successfully recover that American Flag.
