Yonkers firefighters say final farewell to one of their own

Hundreds of Yonkers firefighters along with family and friends said a final farewell Friday to a veteran firefighter taken too soon.



Lt. Anthony Mangone, 48, died of natural causes Tuesday at his Yonkers home. Funeral services were held at St. John the Baptist on Yonkers Avenue.



"He was good at what he did, and he got along with everybody," says Capt. John Caulfield, a retired Yonkers firefighter. "And I enjoyed working with him when he was my driver from time to time."



Mangone was known for his charity work, especially with the Ronald McDonald House. He is also remembered as a leader and dependable friend.



Mangone joined the fire department in 1994 and leaves behind a 14-year-old daughter.
