Mike was killed in the line of duty Sunday

Prior to joining FDNY in April 2006, Mike

was a member of Local 998 and the

Stratford Fire Department. Mike

graduated from the Connecticut Fire

2750 Main St. where he remained until put into active duty with his

Marine unit in Iraq. Upon his return he resumed his roll as firefighter

for the town on Engine 3 at Lordship station. In the spring of 2006

 Mike accepted a position with the FDNY and started the academy

April 11th 2006 where he served as squad leader and graduated in

the top 10 of his class. After graduation he was assigned to Engine 75

“The Animal House” in the South Bronx. Michael, from all of us at the

Stratford Fire Department you were a firefighter, a brother, and best

of all a friend. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. From the members

of the Stratford Fire Department, our heartfelt prayers go out to the

families of Michael, Lt. Carplunk and our brothers and sisters of the
