Thousands Attend Lieutenant Michael R. Davidson’s Funeral Service
On Tuesday, March 27, 2018, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro and thousands of FDNY members, family and friends attended the funeral service for Lieutenant Michael R. Davidson of Engine Company 69 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
“Michael Davidson was a hero and people like Michael are the foundation of New York City,” said Mayor de Blasio. “But for those who loved him, Michael is more than just part of the foundation; he was the cornerstone, the cornerstone of his company as a nozzle-man and of his community of Floral Park.”
“So many nights, Mike led his company into a fire, towards the danger, using his remarkable abilities and talents to extinguish the fire,” said Fire Commissioner Nigro. “It was clear from the very beginning of his career that Mike was special, and he showed it every day of his 15 years of brave service.”
