Wednesday morning, The Big House L-134 brought home retired FF John Elges who will be laid to rest this weekend. John fought long & hard against 9/11 #cancer. In life, John was a stand up guy, real straight shooter that cared for others more than himself. He served as a volunteer with Long Beach, NY Fire Dept TL-72, protecting the community he lived in. #FDNY #thebighouse #cancersucks #911 #papd #firefighter #hero #elges #johnelges #brotherhood #nycfire #nycfirewire
